Asbestos is one of the biggest occupational health issues in the UK. The Health and Safety Executive figures suggest that approximately 5000 people die each year in the UK through past exposure to asbestos. In excess of 6 million tonnes of asbestos were imported into the UK prior to it being banned in 1999. Much of this still remains.
Regulation 4 of The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, (CAR 12) requires that asbestos is managed in non-domestic premises, so that no one is exposed to asbestos in the future.
