Asbestos related illness still a killer

22 May 2017

Asbestos is still a killer. Find out more here and mitigate the risks using eLearning courses and asbestos condition surveys from Praxis42.




Every year, thousands of professionals engaged in many industry different sectors sit the Praxis42 Asbestos Awareness eLearning course. Over just 30 minutes, this course helps them to understand what to do to protect themselves when they encounter asbestos in the workplace. Like all Praxis42 eLearning course, this one is IOSH Approved and it ensures that their employers have complied with their absolute legal requirement to provide this training.

Asbestos is a microscopic material which had multiple uses across numerous sectors over a period of around 100 years from the end of the ninetieth century to the end of the twentieth.With properties combining high tensile strength, heat resistance, insulation and sound absorbency, it was widely used in the constructions and fitting of both residential and commercial buildings.

Despite having been banned in most countries by the 1990s, there are still over 500,000 properties in the UK alone in which asbestos is present.Around 3,500 deaths per year are attributed to asbestos related disease such as Asbestosis, Mesothelioma or Asbestos induced Lung Cancer

Experts recognise that Asbestos related issues can lie dormant for as long as 60 years before symptoms begin to appear.These can include chest and back pains, stubborn coughs, breathlessness and chest pain.Anyone who knows that they have been exposed to asbestos should consult their GP for a check-up.

For those who believe that they are suffering from an asbestos related issue, financial and legal assistance may be available.  Some solicitors specialise in asbestos related claims and know how to work with Health and Safety specialists like Praxis42 which has the expertise to investigate evidence of exposure through Asbestos Condition Surveys.  In such cases, financial rewards can be made if legitimate claims are made within time limits.

It goes without saying the prevention is much better than cure.This is particularly true when it comes to Asbestos because a cure is not always available in cases where unscrupulous employees have failed to provide their employees with training to which they have a legal right. If this may be you, then use a search engine to find a specialist solicitor to help you to understand an exercise your rights.

And if you are an employer wanting to know more about your Asbestos-related responsibilities towards your workforce and how to help to ensure their safety, then contact us today.
