Asbestos In UK Schools

Asbestos Advice Helpline have put together this infographic which takes a look at the threat of asbestos in UK schools. It is believed that almost 90% of UK schools contain this deadly material which, when disturbed, can release millions of tiny fibres. These fibres, when inhaled, can lead to the development of asbestos-related diseases including mesothelioma, asbestosis, lung cancer or pleural thickening.

There is the urgent need for the government to change their stance from ‘manage’ to ‘remove’ and once and for all get this deadly material out of schools.
