Aussie Building Sites Contaminated.

Standard

More than 50 building sites across the nation are suspected of illegal asbestos contamination from China, in a problem described as the “tip of the iceberg”.

Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency CEO Peter Tighe said he was aware of 64 sites where asbestos-tainted concrete fibre sheeting has been used in construction.

State workplace safety authorities are monitoring 17 sites in New South Wales, 13 in Queensland, 11 in South Australia and eight in Victoria.
