Asbestos in Schools

A recent Parliamentary report has estimated that an astonishing 75%  of schools in England and Wales contain the material, according to The London Evening Standard (09.09.2014).

46 year old Sarah Bowman received a payout from Brent Council after being given a year to live in 2009,when she was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma. Ms Bowman went into remission after surgery. She was exposed to asbestos whilst at school between 1979 to 1984 where the ceilings and corridors container the killer substance. 

We want to raise awareness that our children may be exposed to asbestos. Ask your school or council what measures have been taken to identify and manage asbestos.

The first step of managing asbestos is to have an asbestos survey carried out. We offer all types of asbestos surveys and cover the UK. Most of our work is in Yorkshire and Lancashire, in particular Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield, Halifax, and Wakefield.
