Can You Get Mesothelioma from Attending School?

Can You Get Mesothelioma from Attending School?
Infographics are an exceptional method to convey information. To date, we have presented infographics on asbestos and the navy, interesting historical facts about asbestos, and interesting facts about asbestos. The infographic below, produced by Spencers Solicitors, highlights the problem of asbestos in schools.
The two most troubling statistics from this infographic include the following:
1. 75% of schools have asbestos!
2. For every school worker that dies of mesothelioma, nine former pupils die from asbestos exposure.
Though these statistics are based on UK schools, it is fairly clear that similar stats would prevail in other countries because asbestos was used heavily in construction prior to 1980, meaning that most schools built during this period will will have problems that need to be addressed.
