Family wins settlement in claim over teacher’s asbestos cancer death

We'll be publishing our research into the state of asbestos in UK schools very soon

This is a timely story for us here at Start Software.  We've been analysing some of the 60 million+ asbestos records which have been captured using Alpha Tracker (with agreement from our asbestos consultancy users) to understand the condition of asbestos within UK schools.

We'll be publishing that research very shortly - watch this space.
