That this House welcomes the survey, As Safe as Houses, commissioned by UCATT and researched and written by Dr. Linda Waldman and Heather Williams; notes that the study has uncovered deficiencies in the management of asbestos in domestic dwellings; proposes the situation be improved and tenants and maintenance workers protected by extending the duty to manage asbestos to the internal part of the properties and all identified asbestos to be recorded in a register; recommends that all power tools carry a warning to remind users of the potential danger of asbestos and that apprenticeship training courses for construction workers contain modules on asbestos risks and protection procedures; and calls of the Health and Safety Executive to review its campaign to raise awareness of asbestos amongst maintenance workers to include some of the report's recommendations.
