Asbestos in schools

There is simple action you can take.

Is your child being exposed to asbestos at school? 

Find out whether your school has asbestos in it and assess how well it is managed using the information and guidance we give on what to ask. Ask for the information from the Local Education Authority, or from the school.

Compare the answers with the facts given in the papers that are available on this site. Decide if the answers and the tests are satisfactory.

Compare our list of objectives with what is happening in your school and assess whether you are being told the whole truth about past cumulative exposure, the asbestos management procedures and the future controls being put in place.

 Join our campaign to find out

If you do not have complete confidence in the asbestos management system then join our campaign for these simple, common sense objectives.The list is one page long and you can download it, print it or add it to an email

Send the list to your MP, to your local councillor or to your local paper, national paper or magazine saying why you are personally worried and ask them to take action.

Tell blogs, internet education forums, on line newssheets the problem and ask them to campaign for our objectives. If they feature anything on asbestos in schools then tell them about this site.
