Asbestos causes thousands of people to fall ill and die every year due to exposure. It is probably the most dangerous building material ever used. Until 2000, it was widely used by the construction industry, and many people come into contact with it during their work. That includes builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and other building related and maintenance trades.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 apply to employers, employees, self employed persons and duty holders. It covers all work with asbestos containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. It should be noted this includes maintenance workers and any individual who may come into contact with it. In addition to those who may disturb asbestos.
