I am an industrial disease solicitor specialising in noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus, acoustic shock, asbestos-related diseases and workplace injuries.
“While people may associate the use of asbestos with heavy traditional industries its use was much more common, with public buildings such as hospitals, offices and schools all containing asbestos.
“While asbestos is no longer used as a freely as it once was, this year’s Workers’ Memorial Day is an important time to reflect on the devastating legacy of the material and why safety must always come first in the future.
“The shocking problems of the past must never be repeated again and employers need to recognise the dangers that the material can pose.”
“Just a few months on from Tina’s death, her loved ones remain understandably devastated by their loss.
“The family have a number of questions regarding how she developed mesothelioma and are keen to get more information on the issues.
“Our initial research suggests there could have been asbestos in a host of locations within the County Hall office where Tina worked, including in wall panels, ceiling tiles, fire doors and notice boards.
“Sadly this is one of a growing number of cases which relate to asbestos exposure in public buildings such as council sites, hospitals and schools. While asbestos has often been linked to industrial settings, these types of issues are becoming more and more common.”
