Workers who work with products containing silica are at risk of developing the deadly lung disease silicosis and SafeWork NSW is working hard to raise awareness of how to prevent exposure and protect workers.

Workers who work with products containing silica are at risk of developing the deadly lung disease silicosis and SafeWork NSW is working hard to raise awareness of how to prevent exposure and protect workers.

Whilst asbestos use is banned, it continues to have a huge impact on Australians. Asbestos is still present in many workplaces and buildings built before 2004. Large numbers of Australian workers continue to be diagnosed with asbestos related illnesses, many years after they were exposed.

If you’re in the construction, demolition, stone benchtop fabrication, stone masonry and foundry industries or work with concrete, bricks or tiles you’re invited to a free workshop to help keep yourself and workers safe.

You may be eligible for a small business safety rebate if you attend this event.

The event is FREE to all but places are strictly limited so register now to reserve your spot.
