Australia Initiated Safety Action Plan against Mesothelioma
Saturday, December 13, 2008

Considering society and people's health, a safety action plan is initiated by the Minister for Australia's State Industrial Relations in order to prevent the mesothelioma and asbestos related diseases. This plan provides necessary guidance and training materials to the workers and tradesmen especially those who working in the industries like building companies, construction companies, etc.

Paul Caica, Minister of Industrial Relations, held the launch at a service during the Asbestos Victims Memorial Day. Mr. Caica stated the plan would incorporate five strategic initiatives focusing on many aspects of society:

  • Communication
  • Education
  • Training
  • Partnerships
  • Research and
  • Intervention

Due to a large rate of asbestos use in mining, Australia has one of the highest rates of mesothelioma in the world. According to recent studies, over 600 cases are diagnosed each year in Australia and that number is not expected to decline. It is estimated that most public buildings, hospitals, schools and homes built between 1840 and 1987 in Australia contain asbestos. The Asbestos Action Plan demonstrates the Australian Government’s commitment to work together with industry and community organizations to address this terrible contagion.
