A Brief History of Asbestos in Perth, WA
Asbestos was discovered as an indestructible material centuries ago. Due to the length and flexibility of its fibres, it became incorporated into manufacturing products, such as brake pads, fabric, gaskets and paper. It blocks heat transfer because it is fireproof and it, therefore, represented the ideal insulation material. In both its fabric and compacted-brick forms, it was used to cover heating systems and kilns.
Asbestos occurs naturally. Therefore, it was simply mined and not manufactured. Just like in many other states, it is present in vast natural deposits in Western Australia. In 1936, blue fibre (crocidolite) deposits were discovered in Wittenoom by Lang Hancock. These materials are easily available for construction and industrial uses. Its low cost of production as a truly raw material made Australian manufacturers go ballistic.
Driven by greed, manufacturers and other key players convinced the masses that asbestos material was a cutting-edge technology with a thousand and one uses. For this reason, businesses quickly commercialized asbestos-containing material (ACM), even in unusual ways.
Asbestos incidents in Western Australia
Asbestos materials were discovered in roofing panels of at least 10 buildings in Western Australia. The new Perth stadium, Fiona Stanley hospital, and Perth Children’s hospital are few private buildings that use asbestos-tainted gaskets sourced from China. As a consequent, construction workers were exposed to this dangerous asbestos fibre. The manufacturers claimed that specified materials being supplied were asbestos-free and tested negative for asbestos. However, an audit revealed the test report had not actually confirmed the roofing panels for the presence of asbestos.
Moreover, the Australian agency responsible for testing asbestos at the border has since revealed that they only tested a fraction of shipments each year for this substance. They stated that it was impossible to guarantee that all imported materials did not contain asbestos materials.
These findings imply that detecting and preventing the existence of asbestos is still much needed in Western Australia.
