Why asbestos is a dangerous killer
Exposure to asbestos fibres is extremely dangerous. Every week in the UK alone more than 20 tradesmen die because of historic exposure to asbestos, while the total number of people killed each year is more than 5,000.
Although asbestos was widely used many years ago, there is a chance that it could be present in any building built or refurbished before the year 2000. If any asbestos present is damaged or disturbed it will release dangerous fibres into the air and these fibres, once inhaled, can trigger life-limiting diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer.
One particularly dangerous feature of these diseases is the fact that they often take many years to become apparent. Sadly, there is very little effective treatment once the diseases are diagnosed. All of this means that anyone finding asbestos in a building should have it managed, repaired, or removed to prevent people from being exposed.
