Asbestos Awareness Week 2022

Are you aware of the asbestos danger within our homes and workplaces?

More people die from asbestos-related diseases per year than are killed on the roads. Despite being banned for use in the UK during 1999, Asbestos can still be found in any building built or refurbished before the year 2000.

Paul Lillis, Managing Director of Shield’s Asbestos Division commented, “The threat posed by asbestos and the thousands of products previously manufactured from it remains a constant threat not just to trades professionals working within contaminated environments, but to home-owners who are simply unaware as to its presence.”

This Global Asbestos Awareness Week, if you have concerns over the presence of asbestos within your environment, please contact an asbestos specialist to prevent any potential exposure to this killer material. Our teams at Shield Services are here to support and guide you through your asbestos challenge.
