Posted on June 12, 2014: Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization Guest Blogs for UK SHP Health and Safety Week
Posted on September 24, 2014
It is through collaborative action, we can support each other in our mutual goals and raise mesothelioma awareness not just in the United States but around the globe.
ADAO was honored to write another guest blog for the UK online magazine – Safety and Health Practitioner (SHP) – in support and recognition of National Mesothelioma Awareness Day on September 26, 2014.
As part of the ADAO Partner for Prevention blog series with SHP, I wrote this blog – “Asbestos and Mesothelioma Awareness are Circling the Globe” – featuring recent international asbestos stories from the UK, Asia, and Bangladesh.Also listed in the article are a list of September events to raise asbestos and mesothelioma awareness and action to prevent exposure. Remember that asbestos and mesothelioma occurs every day of the year – each day of “300 people die from preventable asbestos caused diseases, yet only an estimated 72% of the world has banned asbestos,” and only through collaborative efforts to build a “culture of prevention” can we raise awareness and save lives.
As we know, together change is possible.
