Asbestos has been a banned substance in the UK for many years, but this harmful substance is still present in a number of older buildings.
When construction workers, electricians and other tradesman are servicing these buildings, it’s important that they do so wearing all the right safety apparel. Furthermore, the obligation lies with the employer to ensure that all staff members have been made aware that they are handling asbestos and have received the adequate training to do so.
Failure to do this constitutes negligence on their behalf, but more than this it can lead to innocent employees becoming ill with asbestos-related diseases. Asbestosis, mesothelioma and other illnesses such as lung cancer can develop as a result of prolonged exposure to asbestos, which can leave the sufferer in chronic discomfort. If you or a loved one have had to suffer difficulty breathing and other painful side effects of asbestos-related illnesses, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline right away.
