Asbestos TrainingThus far, almost 3 million dollars was paid to Tasmanian workers who are victims of asbestos exposure.

Workplace relations minister David O’Byrn confirmed that the asbestos Related Diseases compensation scheme had already granted payments to eight applicants.

So far the largest compensation awarded under the employer-funded scheme, was $540,000. The program was launched in October and the cost was covered by an employer-levy. O’Byne alleges that Tasmania’s biggest OHS killer was going to become even more of a problem when the contraction rate is expected to be at its highest in the next five-to-10 years.

O’Byrne stressed the dangers of the asbestos substance which exists throughout various government and corporate buildings, and even homes.
