Asbestos is, according to the Health and Safety Executive, the single biggest cause of deaths related to the workplace in the United Kingdom.
However, the dangers were not widely known until the 70s. As such, many workers in a host of different industries were exposed over prolonged periods to the potentially fatal material.
Asbestos related diseases include lung cancer, mesothelioma, pleural plaques and asbestosis. They can severely hinder quality of life or even be potentially fatal.
