Asbestos: a hidden killer

Asbestos is a real hidden killer. Whether you’re a homeowner, drilling holes to put up a shelf or a small business, knocking down a wall as part of a normal working day, asbestos is much more common than people think. Thankfully, companies such as Fibre Environmental Solutions over in Drighlington are experts in dealing with suspected asbestos. They’re raising awareness of this hidden killer too. Visiting the company last week I was really impressed. Not only do they provide services to detect and remove asbestos but they want to spread the word about the dangers too. Local businesses and trades are being offered free training to spot the dangers of asbestos before it is disturbed and can cause real harm. £10,000 worth of training is available free to anyone. I hope local businesses take up the offer so that we can reduce the needless number of fatalities caused each year by asbestosis. To find out more contact Fibre on 0113 385 6640.

But Fibre’s free training isn’t all they were celebrating. Bucking the trend of stagnating growth in the regional and national economy, the company is expanding. Last week Fibre committed to doing their bit to save us from youth unemployment and a lost generation of talent. Their Britain’s Lost Talent initiative means they will take on two new apprentices every three months. That’s really great news for young people looking for their first step on the career ladder. We have some great local businesses here in Morley. Fibre are one of them and a real asset to the local business community.
