Hundreds of UK teachers have died from asbestos exposure over the last 15 years

Elaine spotted this piece of dreadful asbestos-related news: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/scandal-almost-300-british-teachers-22787332.  Nearly 300 British teachers have died from exposure to asbestos in the last 15 years.


The general public still believes, mistakenly, that asbestos is an "old problem" because the dangers have been known for years and it is no longer used as a construction material.

However, our asbestos software Alpha Tracker is capturing information about asbestos in situ in buildings across the UK and beyond each and every day, with hundreds of asbestos surveyors using the Tracker Mobile software to find more asbestos in buildings year-on-year.  We already have the biggest database of asbestos items in the world (we believe) with more than 30,000,000 items of data collected in our system.

As a company, we will continue to raise awareness about asbestos through our software and our links with Mesothelioma UK, our corporate charity.
