The focused topic on this weeks segment of FITTER | HAPPIER was Asbestos…in particular the involved health risks, and the health & safety issues surrounding home renovations and/or improvements that may or may not hold exposure to asbestos fibres hiding within the walls.

Exposure to Asbestos fibres can lead to a number of health complications such as Asbestosis, Lung Cancer and Mesothelimia (aka Malignant Tumours), and more. To help learn more in how to properly and safely complete a home renovation if there was to be exposure to asbestos fibres is the acting Manager of Environmental Health Hazards for the Enviromental Health Directorate of W.A; Mr. Mike Lindsay
