Who is at Risk?

Who is at Risk of Asbestos related diseases?

Unfortunately, the figures for asbestos-related diseases are rising – approx. 20 tradesmen die each week.

Any gender or age can be affected and it can take between 15-60 years to cause major health problems but some people are affected sooner.

If you work on buildings built before 2000, understanding the risks associated with asbestos will help protect you from future exposure.

A combination of smoking and asbestos exposure also increases health risks by 53 times.
