Asbestos Awareness Campaign ‘Go Slow! Asbestos it’s a NO Go’ – 16 & 17 November 2017

Posted on: Tuesday, 7 November 2017 at 1:58:44 PM

The Shire is hosting a barbeque in Kununurra and in Wyndham in support of the ‘Go Slow! Asbestos it’s a NO Go’ campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of asbestos in and around homes.

With asbestos-related diseases continuing to increase among Australians as a direct result of exposure to asbestos fibres during home renovations and maintenance, the importance of raising awareness about the dangers of asbestos and how best to manage it in and around homes, cannot be overstated!
