Asbestos Dangers


Consulting structural engineers Brierley & Co specialise in the Asbestos Laws and carry out Asbestos Surveys.

The latest news from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) is that whilst it is well known that blue and brown variants of asbestos are very hazardous it is now considered that white asbestos (chrysotile) which was considered harmless is now under the Amended Regulations considered to be a hazardous material. 

While statistics are not available to pinpoint exactly how many people die from the effects of chrysotile asbestos each year the HSE estimate that it is somewhere between one death in 5,000 workers although it could be as high as one in 750!

Brierley & Co say that one death due to asbestos is one death too many. Which is why they have established a division of their business as Brierley Environmental to deal with asbestos, radon gas and the dangerous effects of contaminated sites. 

Further information on this particular subject of asbestos can be obtained from Brierley & Co, chartered structural engineers.
