Asbestos: the hidden killer which takes the lives of around 5000 workers each year.

There are six types of asbestos, all of which contain extremely hazardous materials that when disturbed, turn into airborne fibres that can cause serious ill health when inhaled. Health conditions caused by inhaling asbestos take a long time to develop however as these can go undetected, it is often too late once a diagnosis is confirmed. 

Due to this it is absolutely crucial all workers who pose the risk of disturbing asbestos materials must be appropriately trained to ensure they can conduct their duties as safely as possible.
