One in three homes contains asbestos

Going to a job? Follow three simple steps to be asbestos ready.


Is the home built before 1990? Asbestos was used in more than 3000 building materials and you can’t tell just by looking at them. Use our asbestos checker to see where asbestos can be found around the home.

Step 2 —Plan ahead

Asbestos is dangerous when disturbed, so you shouldn’t remove it yourself. Fibres from disturbed, damaged or deteriorating asbestos are easily inhaled and can be a health risk. If you’re engaging tradespeople, ask them about an asbestos contingency plan. Use our planning checklist to keep you safe and avoid any project delays or cost blow outs.

Step 3 — Call in a licensed asbestos professional

Please don’t risk your health or anyone else’s. A licensed asbestos professional will provide advice on how to protect everyone’s health and help you to proceed safely.
