Dear Members and Friends

It is well known that throughout the often tragic history of worker health and disease, the worker and the general community played a primary role as a catalyst of every significant improvement in legislation, factory inspection, compensation and accident prevention.

At present the asbestos diseases compensation legislation in Western Australia is unfair and is detrimentally affecting asbestos diseases victims and their families. Therefore the asbestos diseases society of Australia members and committee are calling upon the western Australian community to support their petition to the honourable members of the legislative council of the parliament of Western Australia.

With deep respect I dedicate this website to the memory of all those unfortunate victims of asbestos-caused diseases, and their families.

Link to Petition

Quoting a Kenyan proverb ...
"We do not inherit the earth from our parents, rather we borrow it from our children."

The principal aim of this website is to provide information on asbestos, its risk and to initiate programs to reduce the fourth wave of asbestos diseases which has already begun, and inevitably will become more insidious if exposure to asbestos in public and private buildings, schools and the environment is not abated.

President of the Asbestos Diseases Society,
