“Thousands of Met police officers in asbestos ‘risk’ alert”

Asbestos awareness can save lives!

 

Asbestos News: “Up to 30,000 police officers might have come into contact with asbestos at training facilities, the Metropolitan Police have said.

The force confirmed it was examining a number of buildings used for firearms training between 1980 and 2007.

It also said it was in the process of contacting “a large number of officers” who might have been affected.

At one time asbestos was frequently used as a building material.

5,000 deaths

Exposure to asbestos can cause serious and potentially-fatal diseases including mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.

We have carried out work in the following areas:

Asbestos surveys Leeds; Asbestos surveys Manchester; Asbestos surveys Sheffield; Asbestos surveys Wakefield; Asbestos surveys Bradford; Asbestos surveys Halifax; Asbestos surveys Doncaster; Asbestos surveys Hull; Asbestos surveys Lincolnshire; Asbestos surveys York; Asbestos surveys Harrogate; Asbestos surveys Dewsbury; Asbestos surveys Suffolk; Asbestos surveys Batley; Asbestos surveys Keighley; Asbestos surveys Stockport; Asbestos surveys Greater Manchester; Asbestos surveys Bury; Asbestos surveys Bolton; Asbestos surveys Oldham; Asbestos surveys Liverpool; Asbestos surveys Chester; Asbestos surveys Barnsley; Asbestos surveys Greater Manchester; Asbestos surveys Salford; Asbestos surveys Beverley; Asbestos surveys Leeds; Asbestos surveys Bridlington; Asbestos surveys Scarborough; Asbestos surveys Lincoln;

 

It is thought it is generally only people who regularly work directly with materials containing asbestos who are at any serious health risk but Health and Safety Executive figures estimate there are 5,000 deaths a year caused by exposure to the substance.

Short-term exposure is not considered to pose a danger.

The HSE says asbestos can be present in any building built or refurbished before 2000.”
