Asbestos Awareness


Health Risks


Every week 20 tradesmen die from asbestos-related disease. If you carry out work on a building that was built or refurbished before the year 2000, you could have been exposed to asbestos, without even knowing it.

  • Asbestos-related diseases kill more people than any other single work related illness.

  • Asbestos-related diseases can take 15-60 years to develop and there is no cure.

  • Asbestos-related diseases are currently responsible for more than 4500 deaths a year in the UK and the number is still rising.

  • ACMs in good condition and left undisturbed cannot cause ill-health.

  • The greater the disturbance of ACMs and the longer the duration, the greater the risk to health.
