Asbestos related diseases are responsible for around 4500 deaths each year – the biggest single cause of work-related deaths in Great Britain. The number of deaths attributable to asbestos continues to rise and is not likely to peak for a few years. Although the use of asbestos is prohibited in new buildings, it is still present in buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000.
There is a legal requirement for asbestos awareness training to be given to anyone whose work could foreseeably expose them to asbestos – the training should be given to all demolition workers, those workers in the refurbishment, maintenance and allied trades where it is foreseeable that their work will disturb the fabric of the building.
