Rock wool, silica and RCFs – learning the lessons of asbestos
For decades, asbestos in the UK has been tightly regulated, with legislation developing to increase controls and better manage this hazardous material. Now, similar hazards are being identified – rock wool, silica and refractory ceramic fibres. This seminar will explore what legislators working in this field can and should learn from all areas of the asbestos industry – including training, consultancy, and removal.
