SafeWork SA compliance focus on asbestos management at workplaces

SafeWork SA inspectors are visiting workplaces across the state to ensure they are managing asbestos.

It is estimated that 4,000 Australians die each year from asbestos-related diseases.

Inspectors will focus on identifying and managing asbestos in buildings built before 31 December 2003.

They will be checking to ensure that asbestos in workplaces is identified and its location marked and recorded in an asbestos register.

The compliance campaign supports the National Strategic Plan for Asbestos Awareness and Management 2019-2023 by the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency (ASEA).

The National Strategic Plan aims to eliminate asbestos-related diseases in Australia by preventing exposure to asbestos fibres.

Additional information on the above compliance campaign is available on the SafeWork SA website.
