The Deadly Legacy of Asbestos in Australia
Latest News reported that the asbestos legacy of the past has created bigger problems for remote Indigenous communities. The report finds that asbestos-containing material (ACM) poisoning is still a big risk in remotes areas like North Territory, Western Australia, South Australia, NSW and Queensland.
This hazardous material has been a tremendous problem in every part of Australia. Asbestos has affected many people and communities in Australia, including the Indigenous communities. This toxic material is found to be in many Indigenous corporations, land councils, and older infrastructures: such as in public buildings, housing and churches.
Asbestos in The Past
Since the late 1800s, friable asbestos products have been extensively used in commercial and industrial settings for fire resistance, soundproofing and insulation. Housing built before 1990 may also be installed with friable asbestos products.
Its affordability and unique quality attracted many industries to use the products. The material is known for its flexibility, versatility and insulating capability. It was estimated that there are more than 3000 applications of asbestos worldwide. Australia was one of the highest users among the countries in the world until the mid-1980s.
Australia first manufactured asbestos cement (AC) materials in the 1920s. From the mid-1940s until the late 1980s, the product was largely used in the manufacture of domestic buildings materials. The famous product “AC” is fibro, short for asbestos cement sheet. It was used mainly for roofing, wall cladding, fences and ceilings.
Among six types of asbestos, chrysotile and crocidolite were largely mined in Australia up to late 1984. Between 1930 and 1983, nearly 1.5 million tonnes of all types of asbestos materials were imported to Australia.
The material was banned on December 31, 2003. The total ban applied to manufacture, import, transport, use, reuse, sale or storage of asbestos in all forms.
The ban is expected to stop the use of any kind of asbestos product in the construction industry. However, the reality speaks differently. The material still could be found to be installed in some buildings. According to authorities, dozens of Australians premises are contaminated by asbestos that was imported illegally from China. There are more than 50 buildings all over the nation suspected of containing illegal asbestos materials.
Thus, survey and testing become priority actions that need to be done immediately before the asbestos causes more health risks to more people.
