26 October 2017

 The Union has teamed up with the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency and the Master Plumbers Association of Australia to produce a pamphlet for Plumbers working with asbestos

The Union has teamed up with the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency and Master Plumbers Association of Australia to produce a leaflet aimed specifically at those working in the industry who have a very high chance of encountering asbestos in their day to day working lives.

Plumbers and Sprinkler Fitters encounter asbestos almost on a daily basis, particularly when working on older residential houses and construction sites built prior to 1990, so they must be vigilant to ensure they are not exposed to asbestos fibres.
