Asbestos awareness in Runcorn is the first step in preventing serious illness and disease. Every year, more than 5,000 people die due to the results of direct exposure to asbestos. Tradesmen working in older buildings and construction projects are the most at risk followed by people living in homes and dwellings built before the 1990s. Even those attending older schools are at risk. The dangerous thing about asbestos is you won’t know that you’re being exposed. Initially, there are no symptoms whatsoever. By the time symptoms become noticeable, the asbestos will have caused significant health issues. Continued exposure to this substance is fatal. Asbestos awareness is the only way you can prevent exposure and protect yourself from being in harm’s way.
For tradesmen, surveyors and appliance installers based in Runcorn, asbestos awareness training is available from us at Asbestos Associated. These individuals are at highest risk for asbestos exposure and its ensuing health issues. We recommend using hand operated tools and wearing face and eye masks while working in older establishments. Part of our awareness training also teaches you how to identify asbestos. This will help you quickly pinpoint its existence and take necessary precautionary measures. Having this valuable knowledge about what asbestos looks like and where it’s exposed can save your life and of your friends and family members. Prolonged exposure to asbestos can lead to diseases and conditions like mesothelioma, asbestosis and pleural effusion and thickening. Raising concerns also helps landlords and building measures to implement safety measures to minimize or remove exposed asbestos areas. They will need to contact asbestos removal professionals like us to safely remove this harmful substance.
