Random inspection

Avineel Kumar, Nadi | Saturday, June 3, 2017

I WONDER how many other buildings around the country have asbestos? Had the renovation works at the Civic Centre not taken place, we would have never known about it.

I believe it's time random inspections by relevant authorities are done on some age-old buildings and structures to ensure they are asbestos-free.

Meantime, the Government should consider banning importation of all such building construction materials into the country for the safety of its citizens. Being ignorant about asbestos would be very costly in the long run.
