Abstract


  • The toxic health effects of asbestos have been a prominent feature of the Australian industrial landscape for decades. The not-insignificant financial responsibility for asbestos-related compensation claims came to a head with the corporate reorganisation of the James Hardie group beginning in 2001 with the quarantining and subsequent isolation of asbestos liabilities in Australia.
