Managing asbestos in the workplace

Employers have a duty to manage asbestos in the workplace.

Asbestos is the single greatest cause of work-related deaths in the UK.

The Health and Safety Executive provides health and safety advice and guidance so that those who may be exposed to asbestos at work know what to do to protect themselves and others.
