Asbestos

The Hidden Killer

A category one human carcinogen, responsible for 1 in 3 occupational cancers asbestos remains a very much a current threat despite its ban in many countries.

Used prolifically around the world in over 3,500 products, asbestos is most dangerous when damaged, disturbed or degraded and its toxic fibres released into the air where inhalation or ingestion can lead to several serious, often fatal diseases, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and other cancers.

Currently no real-time method exists to detect asbestos when it is actively airborne. Existing testing methods rely upon collecting air samples that reflects a snapshot in time with results that can take days to receive.

Our ambition is to provide a complimentary risk reduction tool alongside the current method. The ALERT PRO range of warning devices can help prevent prolonged unintentional exposure by providing a real-time alert (and downloadable data) when asbestos containing materials have been disturbed and fibres released.
