HSE Asbestos campaigns updates – Asbestos and You

The HSE Asbestos and You campaign urges tradespeople to stay aware of hidden asbestos and protect themselves and others from exposure to asbestos fibres during their work.

Every tradesperson is likely to carry out work in a building that contains asbestos at some point.

Those carrying out repairs or refurbishment are at a higher risk of disturbing asbestos, especially when working in houses built before the year 2000.
