Are You a Tradesman?
Are you a tradesman? or tradeswoman? Did you know that according to the Health & Safety Executive around 20 trades personnel die each week from asbestos related illnesses?
Why is Asbestos So Dangerous?
Asbestos is so dangerous because of the way that the fibres affect the lungs. Asbestos related deaths are about 5000 each year as reported by the HSE.
Tradesmen and women are at the most risk due to the large amounts of asbestos found throughout buildings constructed before the year 2000. During routine maintenance or refurbishments, tradesmen and women often disturb asbestos without knowing. This releases the toxic fibres into the air and can be breathed in.
Asbestos that is breathed in can cause very serious diseases such as Mesothelioma and lung cancers. Extreme care should be taken at all times during any works being carried out to any building that contains asbestos.
How Do I know If My Building Contains Asbestos?
If you building was constructed on or before the year 2000 then it may contain asbestos. There is no perfect way to be certain as to whether your building contains the substance. Asbestos has been painted over, plastered over, covered in textures, moved and hidden over the years.
