The Asbestos Diseases Research Institute is travelling through South Australia with Betty. Betty is a purpose built mobile model home designed to demonstrate where asbestos might be found in and around any Australian home built or renovated before 1987.
Her exterior resembles a typical fibro home but when opened up she reveals where to find asbestos in the bathroom, kitchen, living room, garage and dog house.
Come and see Betty at any of the below locations and you chat with experts and learn about the various locations asbestos may be found in your household and how to manage it safely.
Our work health and safety advisors will be attending all Bunnings stores with Betty to provide information and advice on asbestos management.
