Asbestos Awareness 2012

As I`ve mentioned before, a friend of mine died a couple of years ago as the result of having worked with asbestos in younger days. This site was in fact named after his favourite J B Priestley novel as a kind of tribute to him.

I think I`ve also mentioned that the Ripley and Heanor areas of Derbyshire have an unusually high number of asbestos-related deaths due to the number of retired industrial workers in the area.

Under the circumstances, I like to use this blog to draw attention to the issue at least once a year.

Anyone interested in this issue might like to see this article concerning an event planned for 7.00pm on 29 Feb 2012 at Derby Cathedral  ;

  1. Nice information in the blog. If you have exposure to the asbestos then it will be a risk of developing cancer, as mesothelioma is mostly associated with working with asbestos. It is good to go for asbestos awareness first.
