Attitudes to residential asbestos assessments

Report: Attitudes to residential asbestos assessments

The agency commissioned this report in order to better understand current availability and use of asbestos assessments in the residential sector. Asbestos assessments resulting in the compilation of an asbestos register are required in workplaces in Australia, however there is very little awareness in the community that they are also an effective way of protecting people from the risks of asbestos in their home.

The purpose of this report is to identify the current barriers to the use of asbestos assessments in the home and ways to better inform the market of the assessment services available and the benefits they provide.
