Nov. 21: Asbestos Awareness Campaign Targets Homeowners


WorkSafeBC launched an awareness campaign on the dangers of asbestos in homes built before 1990. Targeted to home owners considering or undertaking renovations or demolition, the campaign runs until early 2017 across a wide range of media including radio, TV, print and social media. Recent research by WorkSafeBC confirms that although there’s some public awareness of what asbestos is and where it may be located, there are also significant gaps in that knowledge that could put workers or others at risk of exposure to this deadly substance.
