Asbestos Awareness

Asbestos is probably the most dangerous building material ever used.

Every year thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos and it was widely used by the construction industry right up until the year 2000.

It is a legal requirement to provide all employees who may come into contact with Asbestos Containing Materials with the relevant training.
