A New HSE Campaign to Ensure Your Safety: ‘Asbestos - Know Your Duty’.

In an effort to safeguard the well-being of individuals in their daily environments, Rundlewalker Solicitors is proud to support the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE) recent campaign - Asbestos: Your Duty, launched on Monday, 15th January. Despite the ban on the use of asbestos in construction 25 years ago, this hazardous material may still be present in buildings erected prior to the year 2000.

The HSE campaign emphasizes the legal obligations associated with managing asbestos, urging those with responsibilities for buildings, including museums, schools, hospitals, places of worship, offices, and factories, to be vigilant and compliant with the law. Exposure to asbestos can have severe health implications, and the campaign seeks to enhance understanding about the legal duty and obligations of managing this dangerous substance effectively.
