McGowan Government endorses national asbestos plan

The McGowan Government has endorsed a national plan to identify and safely remove asbestos from publicly-owned buildings.

The Plan will ensure government departments, agencies, local government and government enterprises identify and assess the risks associated with asbestos containing materials within government controlled buildings, land and infrastructure.

These government-owned buildings, from across the State, will be required to plan for the safe removal of asbestos.

Government agencies will be required to report on their progress to the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, which will then report to the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency on the progress of the Plan.
