Asbestos is still killing
The Swedish Electricians Trade Union (SEF) has discovered that the company “Stockholmshem”, a large housing company which owns some 27,000 apartments, is exposing its workers to asbestos. During installation activities workers had to move cable tracks and came into contact with pipe elbows, which are well known sources of asbestos.
Even though the company possessed the necessary information, it did not arrange the necessary protection measures. This disregard of the existing regulation concerning asbestos activities is jeopardising the workers concerned but also residents and people in the surrounding area. SEF has reported the case to the relevant police department.
