More than half of UK businesses are breaking the law by failing to manage the risks being posed by asbestos.
Independent research commissioned by law firm, Davies Arnold Cooper, (DAC) found that 717,000 (58% of UK businesses) have failed to carry out an asbestos assessment on their business premises. Many of these businesses may be liable to prosecution for breaching regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2002, which came into effect last month.
