Exposure to asbestos

10 October 2012

Do you think you may have been exposed to asbestos at work? All ASLEF members who may have been exposed, particularly those who have worked on steam engines, are asked to complete the Thompsons asbestos exposure questionnaire. This will help us to gather as much information as possible on this issue, and help with any claims for compensation.

Please complete the Thompsons asbestos exposure questionnaire, available here, and send the completed form to 23 Princess Street, Manchester, M2 4ER.

Members who may have been affected should also tell their GP, to make sure the incident is on their medical records in the unlikely event of anything going wrong in the future. Not everyone who has been exposed to asbestos will develop an asbestos-related disease, but it can take 20-40 years for such diseases to develop. As a precaution, it is advisable to avoid any unnecessary exposure to x-rays.
