Asbestos Management

The health and safety of patients, staff and construction workers are a priority for the RHH Redevelopment project.

Asbestos in building products is an issue that all States and Territories are dealing with. The presence of asbestos in old buildings like the RHH is well known and is being actively managed during RHH Redevelopment works.

Materials containing asbestos have been removed from the areas being refurbished. In a limited number of cases where removal is not practicable, the materials containing asbestos is encapsulated.

If you would like more information on how asbestos is managed during the RHH Redevelopment works please read the fact sheet – Asbestos Management Fact Sheet.
