The Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2012 places certain responsibilities upon persons controlling a building to identify and manage asbestos and inform staff and contractors as to the presence of asbestos in the workplace.
Effects of asbestos
People exposed to asbestos fibres may find themselves suffering from long term and, eventually, fatal health problems which may not become apparent for anything up to 30 years after initial exposure.
At this time it is estimated at some 5,000 people a year are dying from the affects of exposure to asbestos.
