The UK Mesothelioma Bill has passed through government this month, with victims of the asbestos related disease now able to get compensation without having to pay the legal fees that come with taking their claim to court. Businesses and property owners are now under more and more pressure from the Health and Safety Executive to follow regulations relating to asbestos testing and control because of its detrimental effect on the lives of those who have been exposed to the poisonous substance.
Asbestos is insidious in its nature, it is not always easily recognisable, even to tradesmen. The British Lung Foundation have recently launched a campaign which seeks to target plumbers, joiners, builders and electricians and encourage them to be aware of the risks asbestos poses. As the single biggest work related killer in the country, it puts not only the worker at risk, but also their friends, colleagues and family if the particles stick to your clothes and tools.
