All types of asbestos fibres are recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as carcinogenic to humans. Asbestos-related diseases kill an estimated 4,500 people each year in the UK and this figure is continuing to rise. There is currently no cure for the illnesses that asbestos fibres can cause.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR) place a legal duty on those responsible for maintaining and repairing premises, to manage the risk from asbestos containing materials.
The ultimate goal for Duty Holders is to protect those working in or on the fabric of buildings from being exposed to asbestos fibres.
