Australia was the biggest per capita users of asbestos in the world. This means Australia has a huge deadly asbestos legacy. A legacy that will remain for many years to come and ensuring the job security of asbestos experts well into the future and that asbestos will remain a part of every major infrastructure upgrade in Australia for generations to come.
Asbestos was used underground for the same reasons as above ground. Asbestos is strong, cheap, chemically inert. It became the go-to material and heavily favoured by civil companies and utility and service providers for these very reasons. To name a few asbestos pipes were extensively used for sewers, water, drainage.
