Asbestos in Schools

I recently had my attention drawn to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Occupational Health and Safety and their recent call for action regarding “Asbestos in Schools”.  This short report (2012) clearly shows the significant risks for anybody who has attended a school that was built before c1975 within the last 50 years or continues to do so or who works in/visits such schools.  (In fact I would suspect that similar problems exist with many (?)most other buildings of this era and especially those designed and built for the public sector.)
I have attached a pdf of the report:asbestos in schools booklet lo res
There is also a House of Common Adjournment Debate upon this matter: HOC Adjournment Debate 7 February 2012 277[Downloadable from: – 09/03/12
