Ensure you fulfil your legal requirement to warn staff and visitors about the risk of asbestos, with a self-adhesive ‘Warning Asbestos’ sign from Safetyshop.
Since the introduction of the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulation 2004, all workplaces in the United Kingdom must comply with strict rules preventing the risk of exposure to this potentially lethal substance. Regulation Four of the control act means that all duty-holders must manage the possible risks of exposure to employees and visitors to your business premises, and by displaying these clear warning signs you are ensuring you comply with the legislation.
Asbestos was widely used in buildings until 1999, when awareness of the serious health risks the fibrous rock causes became better known. When the materials in asbestos are damaged, fibres released into the air can be inhaled and cause serious lung diseases, and even death.
In order to comply with health and safety and specific asbestos legislation, all building owners must take steps to reduce the risk of people on site being exposed to this lethal substance. As with our caution asbestos signs and asbestos area warning signs, Safetyshop’s warning asbestos signs are BS EN ISO 7010 & HSSA Approved and comply with Health and Safety standards.
Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, these self-adhesive vinyl warning asbestos signs can be applied to any smooth, clean, dry surface and are flexible enough that they can even be affixed to curved or cylindrical surfaces. No fixings are required and they are quick and easy to position and apply, meaning you can display them exactly where you need them.
