Remove the killer dust - an asbestos eradication law is needed

Unite supports a global ban on asbestos. And the best way to prevent more asbestos deaths is

to remove all asbestos still present in our buildings and ensure that

it is disposed of safely and never reused.

To do this we need much stronger legislation in Britain. This is

why we support and welcome the All Party Parliamentary Group on

Occupational Safety and health’s decision in June 2015 to call for

a new law on asbestos with a clear timetable for the eradication of

asbestos from every single workplace in Britain.

We also support their call for health and safety enforcement authorities to develop workplace

inspection programmes to verify that all asbestos is marked and managed, and that asbestos

eradication plans are in place – and be properly resourced to carry out this regulatory activity.
