THE DANGERS OF ASBESTOS

Anyone who suspects that asbestos may be present in a building they live or work in needs to act as quickly as possible.  Asbestos is an extremely hazardous material which, if damaged or disturbed, releases fibres which are small enough to be inhaled. Once in the lungs, these fibres can cause serious illnesses such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer. Every week in the UK 20 tradespeople die because they were exposed to asbestos in the past.  In addition, 5000 or so individuals in the UK are killed by asbestos each year, significantly outnumbering those killed in road traffic accidents.  Asbestos was added to over 3000 building materials and any building which was completed or refurbished before the year 2000 could contain asbestos.  Therefore, to prevent exposure it is essential that all asbestos containing materials are either managed, repaired or removed.
