Latest news on COVID-19 related to the Asbestos industry

FAMANZ’s top priority is the health and well-being of our community, starting with our members, contractors and volunteers. We recognise our duty to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

To assist our members, contractors and volunteers, we have gathered a range of resources which are available for asbestos specialists with official links and information from other professional groups and bodies.  We will endeavor to keep this information as current as practicable.

FAMANZ would like to acknowledge the support of the AIHA and other international organisations for making their information available to us, and our members, for use and application to provide a safe workplace, support our vital emergency services and to reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). We would also like to acknowledge our support for the work being done by the public health officials, workers and others supporting them on the front line of this epidemic.
