Asbestos Awareness Week

By April 7, 2021 No Comments

It’s International Asbestos Awareness Week, 1st – 7th April.

Asbestosis is a life-changing condition caused by scarring of the lungs due to inhaling asbestos fibres over time. Many people develop the illness because they were exposed to asbestos at work, sometimes decades ago. Those who worked in the building trade, in shipyards, or with insulation are particularly at risk of developing asbestos-related illnesses, but you could also have been affected if you regularly worked in buildings where asbestos was used, such as schools and offices.
