The Management of Asbestos in Schools Consultation

The Management of Asbestos in Schools Consultation

The Department of Education has launched a review of its policies on asbestos management in Schools.

The call for evidence closed on 31 March 2014.

Thousands of schools in this country still contain asbestos. In Coventry over 50% of schools have asbestos present.

This is a problem that needs to be dealt with not just managed. The Department for Education want to hear opinions and ideas from anyone with an interest in this important subject.

In particular, they would like to hear from those who are involved in the day-to-day management of asbestos in schools, about their experiences and how they think Department for Education can support schools to 

fulfil their responsibilities. 

The Asbestos in Schools Campaign is urging people to respond fully and circulate the call for evidence as widely as possible.
