Firstly I would like to say a HUGE well done and thank you to all the local, out of town and international contractors supporting us Cantabrians. It can’t have been easy leaving the comfort of their homes, friends and families to join us for the earthquake clean up, repair and demolition. We couldn’t do it without your support.
There are many hazards associated with the clean up, repair and demolition post earthquake. There are too many to list!
Do you know what’s in the air you are breathing?
This doesn’t just relate to your place of work but also relates to your home. This is especially evident now given the amount of businesses and homes that require demolition or repair. In the last couple of weeks you may have seen a report on the news regarding the case of a home owner who was living in their house when a builder was undertaking repairs. Unbeknown to the home owner, and the builder, asbestos fibres were being released into the air contaminating the home, potentially exposing the home owner.
