Asbestos
The Hidden Killer

Asbestos is a category one human carcinogen. Contained in over 3,500 products it has been used prolifically around the world. When materials containing asbestos are disturbed, damaged or degraded - asbestos fibres can become airborne. Inhalation or ingestion of these airborne fibres over a period of time can cause serious and often fatal diseases including mesothelioma and other cancers. With asbestos exposure responsible for 1 in 3 occupational cancers protecting people from prolonged exposure is paramount.

Asbestos Facts

Asbestos-related diseases kill around 5,000 workers each year in the UK - more than the number of people killed in road accidents and it claims the lives of over 255,000 people annually worldwide.

• In Britain, approximately 20 tradesmen die each week as a result of past exposure.

• 94% of mesothelioma cases in the UK are caused by workplace exposure to asbestos and could have been
prevented.

• Whilst banned in many countries including the UK, asbestos is still present in many of our buildings built before the year 2000 and therefore remains a very real issue and not just a problem of the past.

For this reason, it remains vitally important to protect yourself and your workforce immediately from prolonged exposure to unintentional exposure which is why governments around the world are introducing regulations and legislation to better monitor and control workers' exposure to this dangerous substance.
