Frequently asked questions

What was asbestos used for?

Asbestos was widely used in Australia until the late 1980s, particularly in the construction industry. Once considered to be a useful mineral because it is flexible, strong, affordable and can insulate from heat and electricity. As a result, Australia has a significant legacy of asbestos-containing materials in various buildings and structures.

Since 2018, there has been over 5.5 million tonnes of asbestos waste disposed of in Australia.

What are the dangers of exposure to asbestos?

Exposure to asbestos can pose serious health risks due to the inhalation or ingestion of asbestos fibers. These microscopic fibers can become lodged in the lungs or other parts of the body, leading to various health problems.
