The Victorian Asbestos Eradication Agency (VAEA) was established in 2016 by an Order in Council to:
prioritise and plan for the removal of the asbestos from government owned buildings
develop a risk based schedule for the prioritised removal of asbestos from government owned buildings
report on the ongoing progress of asbestos removal from government owned buildings
By working toward the eradication of asbestos from Victorian government buildings, we will help prevent asbestos exposure, reduce the risk of asbestos related diseases and make Victorian workplaces and communities safer.
We are an independent state body reporting to the Minister for Workplace Safety. We are also a subsidiary of the state workplace health and safety regulator. The VAEA’s report of operations and financial statements are consolidated within
We have three board members:
Dianne Foggo AM, Independent Chair
Ross McCann AM, Non-executive WorkSafe Director
Simone Stevenson, Executive Director
Our team works collaboratively with Victorian government departments, agencies and public sector bodies to develop a best practice plan for the risk based asbestos removal.
