This interesting Before & After comes to us from our MyHammer colleagues in Vienna, Austria.

Christian D. needed a fir tree that stood in his garden felled safely. The problem? There was a fence and small animal enclosure under it.

Legal concerns are not the only (nor the most important) reason to take an asbestos-awareness course. What may seem like brief or insignificant exposure to asbestos fibres can actually cause irreparable damage to your health. It is the leading cause of mesothelioma; a form of cancer that cannot be reversed.

Take a moment to read about the experiences of these electricians, joiners, plumbers and other tradesmen who all worked with asbestos materials at some point in their careers.  Though asbestos is no longer used in new structures, buildings erected up until the year 2000 may contain asbestos, so the risk of exposure is still very much present for younger tradespeople. „This isn’t just an old man’s story“:
