We are a leader in Asbestos Lab Analysis, Asbestos in Soils Consultancy, Asbestos Retrospective Risk Assessment, Asbestos Awareness Training, and Asbestos Expert Witness services.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 125 million people around the world are exposed annually to asbestos in the workplace, and the International Labour Organization says more than 107,000 workers die each year from a related disease.
A report published in September 2015 concluded over 47,000 people in the European Union are dying of asbestos-related conditions each year with the UK topping the fatalities list. ‘Eliminating occupational cancer in Europe’, published by the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI), puts deaths caused by exposure to asbestos at three times previous estimates.
At IOM, we have made important advances in understanding how asbestos causes disease, leading to the establishment of methods for assessing possible hazard from substitute fibrous materials. By offering asbestos testing, we analyse suspect materials to detect any potential asbestos and assist clients to meet industry requirements related to asbestos risks and awareness.
