Event description

Description

Illegally imported products containing asbestos impact the health and safety of Australian workers and the wider community.

Asbestos and other non-conforming building products continue to be imported illegally into Australia despite being banned in 2003.

Part of the solution is a holistic approach to supply chain management.

Greencap will discuss the impacts of illegally imported asbestos in the building construction industry and ways to minimise the potential to receive them.


Co-Presented by Peter McGarry - Workplace Health & Safety Queensland

Peter has worked in the areas of asbestos, hazardous chemicals, noise, vibration monitoring, lead and biological hazards. He is currently the Manager of the unit that looks after asbestos related issues at Workplace Health and Safety Queensland.
