BOHS has called for careful monitoring and risk assessments conducted by suitably qualified asbestos professionals in order to address the challenging question of how to deal with asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in schools.
As the public debate on asbestos in schools continues, most recently with BBC news reports on the subject, and some suggestions that the material could be present in up to nine out of ten schools in the UK, BOHS, the Chartered Society for worker health protection, says that a measured approach is needed.
The British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) has marked World Cancer Day by calling for far greater acknowledgement of the role of work-related factors in causing cancers, and warned that that neglecting to understand and control occupational exposures to carcinogens, by means of highly effective occupational hygiene solutions, threatens future progress in the battle against the disease.
