Asbestos

A mobile phone app called ACM Check (“Asbestos-Containing Material Check”) has been developed by researchers at Curtin University. The app aims to raise awareness about asbestos in residential settings.

ACM Check is available for free from the App Store and Google Play.

You can register your exposure to asbestos – at home or at work – with the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency.
