The NSW State-wide Asbestos Plan aims to reduce the number of asbestos-related diseases in NSW.
The plan focuses on four key areas:
- research – to develop a better understanding of asbestos issues and identify emerging asbestos-related hazards
- risk communication – to raise public awareness
- prevention – to coordinate illness-prevention strategies
- coordination – to manage asbestos issues and emergency responses, increase compliance and clarify regulatory roles.
The plan identifies initiatives, actions, responsibilities and timeframes to address each of the four key areas.
