What is Asbestos
Asbestos is an extremely hazardous material that poses risks to health and safety. Exposure to asbestos fibres is known to cause Mesothelioma – a deadly cancer caused by inhaling particles of asbestos dust that eat away at the lining of the lungs. It is known to cause diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer, pleural plaques, and pleural thickening. Visit the Pleural Mesothelioma Centre website for more information.

- The owner of the premises
- A person who has under any contract or lease an obligation to maintain or repair the premises
- A person who is occupying the premises
- A person who is able to make decisions about work undertaken at the premises
