On The Tools video: advice for tradespeople on asbestos

Watch the video below where James Naughton, owner of JDN Brickwork Limited interviews Martin, a former carpenter living with mesothelioma, and Paul Beaumont, CEO at Independent Asbestos Training Providers (IATP).

Martin shares his experience and advises tradespeople to “think about what you’re doing, what you’re working with and what type of building you’re in – it’s hidden.”

Paul explains how the issue is when asbestos is disturbed, fibres are released and are then potentially inhaled and causes harm.
