The asbestos compensation scheme aims to ensure that Tasmanian workers with an asbestos-related disease, reasonably attributable to exposure at work, and their families can access statutory compensation to assist them in a difficult period of their lives.

The scheme aims to provide fair and appropriate compensation and pay certain expenses to workers with asbestos-related diseases, and family members of deceased workers.
