Those at risk

Asbestos-related disease is the biggest occupational health killer in the UK with 3,000 people currently dying each year, 25% of these once worked in the building and maintenance trades and often would have worked unknowingly on asbestos containing materials. It is now illegal to use asbestos in the construction or refurbishment of any premises however there is still a significant amount of ACMs still in place. Those at potential risk are anyone whose work involves drilling, sawing or cutting into the fabric of premises. If disturbed or damaged there is a risk of inhalation of airborne fibres. However, as long as the asbestos is in good condition and not likely to be disturbed or damaged the risk is low.
