Lucion Environmental helping with avoiding Asbestos Exposure
It is only in the last decade or so that the government has fully realised the real danger of asbestos exposure. Over the last thirty years use of the substance has been banned in everything from buildings to shipyards. It comes in many forms, and it is those who work closest with the mineral that have faced being diagnosed with mesothelioma. In 2008 the mortality rate for those with the disease in the UK was 2,249.
Most commonly it is construction workers who are a high risk group as they will most probably work with asbestos if renovating a building built prior to 2000. This is why asbestos regulations set by the Health and Safety Executive stipulates that asbestos removal must be carried out by a licensed professional. For those working in construction it is a risk, but companies and building owners can combat exposure by being more asbestos aware and taking the right precautions.
