Asbestos event to illustrate importance of safety signs

7th December 2009 | Health and Safety Signs

An event in Sunderland has helped to alert members of the construction industry to the dangers of deadly asbestos and the importance of using precautionary measures, such as safety signs.

Taking place at the City of Sunderland College, the special session was launched by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which aimed to inform members of the public and workmen about how exposure to asbestos can cause the lung cancer mesothelioma.

Entitled Asbestos: The Hidden Killer, the event illustrated how installing safety signs to alert employees and the public to the dangers of the substance can help to save lives.

HSE principal inspector Chris Gillies, who led the session, commented: "The college tour and the wider campaign are about arming today's workforce with the information they need to protect themselves from this hidden killer."

Meanwhile, the HSE recently visited the Fulcrum campus in Vantage Way, Poole, to deliver a seminar on the dangers of asbestos and how installing safety signs can protect those at risk.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19497787-ADNFCR
