Asbestos Awareness Week Webinar: Update & Challenges of Asbestos Contaminated Land
The NSW EPA will give an overview of some of the challenges of asbestos remediation in discrete Aboriginal communities.
The study is aimed at providing scientific evidence to support the granting of an industry-wide exemption for the application of high-pressure jets on asbestos containing soils, which is currently prohibited. The key findings of the study including the development of safe work procedures and guidelines for the industry, waste disposal and decontamination protocols, and the management of cross-contamination will be discussed in the webinar.
