⚠️ Prohibited Practice: According to WHS laws, the use of high-pressure water spraying equipment on asbestos-containing materials, including asbestos cement roofs, fences, and walls, is strictly prohibited. This is because it can release dangerous airborne fibres, posing significant health risks.


⛔ Consequences: Householders could face fines of up to $10,000 under Public Health Legislation for using high-pressure water blasters on asbestos-containing materials, along with bearing the clean-up costs. Businesses may face even heftier fines.
