The Queen faces multi-million pound asbestos removal bill

The Queen is facing a multi-million pound bill for removing potentially deadly asbestos from Buckingham Palace.

According to royal accounts, almost £1 million of public money has already been spent stripping asbestos from electrical cabling ducts under the flooring in the south wing of the 19th-century building.

Further work to remove the building material from other parts of the palace will take place over 20 years, with the total bill for ensuring the Royals and courtiers avoid developing mesothelioma coming to several millions of pounds.

Asbestos disposal and handling regulations amended April 2012

Less than a week ago HSE’s official Asbestos Regulations for the control and handling of this dangerous substance were amended and re-published on the HSE official website.

The latest HSE regulations have been updated to take into consideration the new European Commission’s view which was that the UK hadn’t completely implemented a full EU Directive regarding asbestos exposure (Directive 2009/148/EC).

The latest changes to legal regulations for asbestos disposal include some additional requirements regarding non-licensed work with particular emphasis on; notification of work, medical surveillance and record keeping. All other asbestos regulations remain unchanged.

For more information on asbestos regulations, asbestos removal or disposal and the efficient, cost effective, licenced services we provide then give our asbestos expert Dan (or any member of the asbestos team a call or even an email). There is nothing we don’t know about asbestos removal and asbestos disposal.

Full HSE asbestos regulations are available on http://www.hse.gov.uk/asbestos/regulations.htm

Greater risk of heart disease for asbestos removal workers

Research has found that those exposed to asbestos in their jobs are at a significantly greater risk of heart disease and stroke than the general population.

It is already common knowledge that asbestos removal workers are prone to serious lung diseases, such as mesothelioma and asbestosis, due to their exposure to asbestos fibres.

In the latest study, scientists analysed the cause of death among nearly 100,000 asbestos workers.  The research team compared the number of deaths from stroke and heart attacks between 1971 and 2005 against the number that would be expected to occur in the general population.

15,557 people died from all causes during the study period.  Strokes accounted for just over 1,000 deaths, while heart disease the reason behind another 4,000.

They found that, based on the standardised mortality ratios, asbestos workers were significantly more likely to die of cardiovascular disease than the general population, even after taking account of smoking.

There was also some evidence that the longer someone was exposed to asbestos, the more likely they are to die from heart disease, even after taking account of smoking.

The research, carried out by the Mathematical Sciences Unit at the Health and Safety Laboratory in Buxton, Derbyshire, is published online in the Occupational and Environmental Medicine journal.
