A unique building and construction industry event, STEELTOES & STILETTOS brings the risk of asbestos to the big stage when tradies are dobbed in and sponsored to walk the catwalk with a model.
With the highest recorded rates of mesothelioma in the world and the most in-situ asbestos of all the states, asbestos has left a devastating legacy in Western Australia. One person dies every 12 hours from mesothelioma in Australia and an estimated 4000 people every year from the effects of asbestos.
We are currently experiencing the third wave of sufferers including home renovators and tradies. This landmark event not only increases awareness within the building and construction industry, it also spreads the message to the wider community.
“Master Builders salute the active role that Reflections plays in raising awareness of the fatal risk of dealing with asbestos in the building and construction industry.
Events such as this bring the asbestos message to a wider audience and help make young people aware of the terrible outcomes associated with this dangerous substance.“
John Gelavis, Executive Director
Master Builders Association of Western Australia Reflections Ambassador
