With funding from Foundation Derbyshire, we have been able to produce a new information leaflet entitled Asbestos and Agriculture. This aims to give guidance to those working on farms where asbestos might be present. Millions of tonnes of the substance was imported to the UK in the 20th century, and it was regularly used in farm buildings.
The new leaflet was launched at the Agricultural Business Centre in Bakewell on Friday 6th December. Copies can be obtained by contacting the DAST office. Or download a pdf from this page: https://asbestossupport.co.uk/about-dast/raising-awareness/
