THE DANGERS OF ASBESTOS
Most people are aware that asbestos is dangerous, but many might not know exactly how dangerous it actually is. The figures speak for themselves: Every year, 5000 people in the UK are killed by asbestos, and that is significantly more than the number killed on the roads Each week, 20 tradespeople die due to having been exposed to asbestos in the past. Perhaps even more alarming than those figures is the fact that asbestos, even though it was banned from use in construction in 1999, can still be present in any buildings built or refurbished prior to the year 2000. This coupled with the fact that asbestos was added to over 3000 building materials means that people are being exposed to this dangerous mineral every day. If asbestos is present and is damaged or disturbed it can release fibres into the air. Breathing these fibres in can cause serious illnesses such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. These illnesses can take many years to develop, and by the time symptoms allow a diagnosis treatment options are often limited. For all the reasons outlined above, anyone suspecting the presence of asbestos in a building which they use should make arrangements to have it dealt with as quickly as possible.
