SafeWork NSW have recently launched a five-part series of asbestos videos aimed at keeping tradies, who are most at risk of being exposed to asbestos on the job, safe. Some of the most at risk groups of tradesmen includes builders, electricians, plumbers, painters, roof restoration experts, floor covering experts, home handymen and bathroom and kitchen renovators.
Links to the five videos can be found below:
