Using One System to Reduce Environmental Risks

Using One System to Reduce Environmental Risks

Episode Fifteen

To expand on an earlier point, the Environment Protection Act 2017 has a strong focus on soil contamination and on the importance of reducing risks of exposure to Asbestos and other harmful substances. When it comes to asbestos you need to know where it is and how to control it, remove it and safely dispose of it. KIM by Kynection has you covered – from SOP’s, JSEAs and SWMS to HSEQ Policies and Procedures, to Project management, contractor and PPE and induction tools. You have everything you need in ONE SYSTEM. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral. It does not dissolve in water, it does not evaporate, it is resistant to heat, fire, chemical and biological degradation, it is soundproof and it is a great binder – which is why it was so popular worldwide until it became clear that the crystal fibres of asbestos are extremely deadly. Asbestos has no safe exposure level and is linked to both short and long term effects including types of cancer. We already mentioned the ingenuity and integrity of Midnight Oil, let’s just listen to their words and reflect together.

The candy store paupers lie to the shareholders

They’re crossing their fingers they pay the truth makers

The balance sheet is breaking up the sky

So I’m caught at the junction still waiting for medicine

The sweat of my brow keeps on feeding the engine

Hope the crumbs in my pocket can keep me for another night

And if the blue sky mining company won’t come to my rescue

If the sugar refining company won’t save me

Who’s gonna save me?”

– Midnight Oil, 1990
