Event: Betty Tour 2016

Discover where asbestos maybe lurking at home or work with a wheely good mobile education tool

On: Thursday, 20 October 2016

Betty is a model asbestos house on wheels that tours the country to promote Asbestos Awareness and the importance of how to manage asbestos safely.
With the support of NT Worksafe, the National Asbestos Awareness Month is bringing Betty to Peko Park from 10.30am-1.30pm.
Representatives of the mobile house on wheels will answer all questions about the dangers of asbestos in homes and buildings. So head on down and find out what can be done to minimise the risks of exposure to this deadly material.
Betty, who leaves Darwin in mid-October, will tour the NT before heading down to Adelaide in South Australia and then back over to NSW. Overall, Betty and her dedicated crew will travel more than 6000km and visit 36 communities in 46 days in the 2016 tour.
Since the mobile asbestos house tour was launched in Sydney in 2012, Betty has travelled more than 36,000km; exhibited at 171 health and community events; 51 Bunnings stores, toured 141 communities; distributed 40,000 magnets and 120,000 brochures; engaged 108 councils, 6,450 renovation students and 4,000 conference delegates and reached 2.19 million Australians at grass-roots level.
