Asbestos and asbestos-related compensation claims: managing the risk

A new report: Asbestos and Asbestos related compensation claims: managing the risk, has been published and made available by the National Federation of Builders to its members and the industry.

Between 1990 and 2008, the number of fatalities each year from mesothelioma increased from 985 to 2,249. The rate of fatalities is set to rise to around 2,500 deaths each year by 2016, reaching its peak between 2016 – 2020.  Asbestos-related diseases can leave a devastating legacy for victims and their families, but the damaging effect on the companies that employed them must also be considered.

As workers in the construction industry are at greatest risk of exposure to asbestos-related hazards, significant numbers of construction firms may be exposed to claims. Given the long term lapse between exposure to asbestos and the development of asbestos-related diseases, companies can face significant problems tracing their old employers liability (EL) policies, potentially leaving them exposed to meeting the full cost of claims themselves.

The NFB has been working closely with industry and government to improve tracing and compensation processes. The Federation is the only industry body to have taken this lead to highlight these problems and ensure that employers have a voice in the process, as well as the claimants.

Despite our work, it is imperative that builders and contractors are aware of the steps they can take in order to minimise the risks they face in receiving claims.

The full report addresses health and safety guidance; insurance holding and tracing EL insurance policies; legal guidance on dealing with claims; the NFB’s work to improve the system and practical advice and assistance. This is available to purchase at £9.95 exc VAT.
