Ucatt Releases Asbestos Factsheet To Prevent Industrial Diseasesa
13th September 2013
An asbestos factsheet, which could prevent accidents at work compensation cases and industrial accident claims, has been released by the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians (UCATT).
Asbestos is a dangerous substance that is present in some buildings built before 2000. It can cause respiratory illnesses, which can prove fatal, but people who have been affected by asbestos may be able to make an asbestos compensation claim.
The factsheet warns the UK’s workers about the dangers of asbestos, details legal requirements that relate to the substance, and explains what a person should do if they discover asbestos.
General maintenance engineers, electronics and communications engineers, alarm installers, construction workers, demolition workers, electricians and other people involved in the building and maintenance of properties are considerably more likely to face asbestos claims than the general public.
It is responsible for 4,000 deaths a year, causing diseases such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis, pleural plaques and diffuse pleural thickening.
