Asbestos Campaign – Ian Wright

HSE launches asbestos campaign – with Ian Wright

A step in the right direction

Figures issued by the Health and Safety Executive today revealed that every week 20 tradesmen die from asbestos-related diseases, and this number is set to increase.

Former tradesman and England and Arsenal footballing legend, Ian Wright, has given his support to help highlight the importance of the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) “Asbestos:The Hidden Killer” campaign which is running throughout October and November and aims to reduce the rising death rate by educating today’s tradesmen about the danger that asbestos presents to them.
