The health of a person in their place of work is of paramount importance, but thousands of people within the UK are still at risk from being exposed to deadly substances, including asbestos. Although the poisonous material was banned in 1985, the number of deaths caused by related diseases such as Mesothelioma has grown substantially.
According to a study by the University of Leicester’s Department of Cancer Studies, we have the highest incidence of asbestos related diseases in the world, and this figure will reach it’s peak in 2020 and sharply rise over the next 20 years.
Asbestos regulations implemented by the Health and Safety Executive are now in place to ensure that employers are taking all the appropriate steps to prevent the spread of asbestos if it is found in the workplace, and face sizeable fines if the guidelines are not followed.
