Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA is seeking applications for a voluntary placement with its Cambodia country program.
With the support of ASEA, the Australian Embassy in Cambodia, and the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) through DFAT, Cambodian lab technicians can detect dangerous asbestos materials in consumer and construction products for the first time.
For the first time, Cambodian customs officers can identify asbestos-containing materials, helping keep workers and consumers safe, and helping unions better advocate for safe workplaces.
In Cambodia, the fight to ban asbestos has taken a major step forward with the launch of the National Asbestos Profile. The National Asbestos Profile helps decision-makers, workers and consumers safeguard health and safety by identifying the dangers of asbestos in their workplaces and communities
