ASBESTOS VICTIM Urges Prime Minister Tony Abbott NOT to Consolidate the Asbestos AGENCY
About this PetitionThe Australian Government National Commission of Audit wants to dismantle the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency. Australian unions, Asbestos groups, organisations and many other interested stakeholders fought long and hard to secure bi-partisan political support for this ground breaking initiative. The Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency is an independent body that has one focus, and only one focus, ASBESTOS! It is vital this agency maintains its independence and does not get swallowed up into the depths of bureaucracy by being merged into a multi-faceted government department. We must not let this happen! Too many lives are lost to deadly and invisible asbestos fibres. It can take between 10 and 40 years before an asbestos related illness such as Mesothelioma (asbestos cancer) is diagnosed. Mesothelioma is a very aggressive and painful cancer. We need to campaign for the Office of Asbestos Safety and Eradication Council to remain and oversee the control of asbestos in Australia.
