Asbestos

Asbestos is the greatest cause of work-related deaths in Great Britain.

Each year, thousands of people die from asbestos-related diseases, which typically take decades to develop and cannot be cured. It is made up of tiny, invisible fibres that can be breathed in or rest on your clothes.

Asbestos was banned in 1999, but before the ban, it was used in many industries and buildings. Ultimately, many people who work in older buildings could still be exposed to asbestos. That’s why awareness, testing, and medical surveillance is crucial. Asbestos also poses a significant financial threat, so it’s more important than ever to make sure businesses are aware of all the medical and legal aspects.

At FOHCUS, our asbestos medical surveillance is carried out by our expert team of occupational health nurses, technicians and physicians.
