Global Ban on Asbestos

Three years ago my oldest friend died from the effects of having worked with asbestos in his youth.

For that reason, I like to promote awareness of the dangers of asbestos and in particular to give a plug to the UK`s annual Action Mesothelioma Day, which takes place this year on 6 July 2012.

The theme of the day this year is to call for a global ban on asbestos.

I have posted various items relating to issues around asbestos at and over a period of time, including a number of fairly recent items.

Anything anyone can do to promote awareness of this cause, perhaps by the use of blogs and social networking sites, would be very much appreciated.


  1. Hi,
    I agree with you about these blog campaign. Countries like India monitoring, regulation and safety norms are not what they should be. Hundreds of workers in factories using asbestos are dangerously exposed to its harmful effects. These workers often have no other means and are not unionized. But now a days Technology changes there are company contractors now that are experienced,knowledgeable that we can assure our families safety.I've heard about Asbestos Removal in Toronto they specializes in asbestos removal.

  2. Although having professional contractors in can be expensive, it's always strongly advised that you don't ever think of cutting costs by removing the asbestos floor tiles yourself. The good news is that asbestos floor tile removal is pretty easy however should always be carried out by professionals like www.ASBESTOSREMOVALPHOENIXAZ.COM

  3. Presence of Asbestos at home or office place can be very harmful for our health. There are some good asbestos abatement Monterey companies providing good services. But you also discussed well about Asbestos removal.

  4. Upon completion, assure that the contractor cleans the area well with wet mops, wet rags, sponges, or HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) vacuum cleaners. A regular vacuum cleaner must never be used. Wetting helps reduce the chance of spreading asbestos fibers in the air.

  5. Yes, I agree with you . It is always wise to ask for some professionals to do the asbestos removal because of it's hazardous asbestos fibers that can cause lung cancer. However Asbestos Removal in Phoenix say's "asbestos is is not that much of a danger as long as you know where it is and how to
    threat it and left it undisturbed".asbestos abatement chicago
