Well we attended the Second annual International Asbestos Conference held in Brisbane in November 2015. We had a stall there exhibiting our books and information on asbestos I also did a presentation entitled “Asbestos in the Residential Sector”. If you watch the video you will see I am definitely out of practice as a public speaker, however my main focus was to attempt to start a conversation about what our 3 tiered Government system could do to encourage people to carry out more asbestos inspections of their own homes. Many people are still undertaking renovations and disturbing asbestos containing materials which may contaminate their homes and their lungs without taking the time to check for asbestos. I also offered a few suggestions about what might encourage people to remove deteriorating asbestos cement fences and roof cladding.
Look forward to any comment.
