Concerns for mismanaged asbestos removal efforts in schools

Concerns for mismanaged asbestos removal efforts in schools

Asbestos or "deadly dust" is not just a thing of the past, and its presence in public areas like schools is an ongoing concern for the community. In September 2015, broken asbestos sheets were found in a school playground in Box Hill North. The primary school arranged for the sheets to be tested - which confirmed it was asbestos - and the material was removed. But this was after children had been found playing in and around the area. We understand that the Education Department is investigating and that parents were notified via the school's app in late October 2015. Kerrimuir Primary School is just 10 minutes drive from our Springvale office where we look after many clients with asbestos related diseases - nearly all of whom were exposed to asbestos in the 1960s and 1970s. If you are concerned about exposure to asbestos or have been exposed, call Bree Knoester on (03) 9321 9879.
