Comeuppance for cold callers!

Law Gazette 1st April 2015

‘No Time to Lose’ campaign aims to raise awareness of occupational cancers and encourage businesses to improve safety standards.

The Institute of Occupational Safety and Health quote recent research indicating that almost 14,000 new cases of cancer caused by work being registered every year in the UK and there are around 8,000 deaths a year from occupational cancer. Their ‘No Time to Lose’ campaign aims to raise awareness of the dangers of cancer causing exposures in the workplace and to help businesses improve their response to these dangers.

No Time to Lose Campaign

Clampdown on cold call companies

BBC.co.uk 25th Feb 2015

The government will be clamping down on cold calling companies by changing the rules to allow companies to be prosecuted and fined more easily. Companies who cold call and send nuisance text messages could face fines of up to £500,000!

Here at RSR Law we agree with this decision and continue to stand against cold calling and text marketing.RSR Law (and this includes SapphireClaims.com and ContestaWill2Win.com) have and never will cold call anyone or use companies who do.

RSR Law Supports Global Asbestos Awareness Week

Law Firm RSR Law Ltd and SapphireClaims.com Supports Global Asbestos Awareness Week

Expert Occupational Illness specialists RSR Law Ltd and SapphireClaims.com, are calling on all employers, employees and self-employed within the construction, renovation and maintenance industries to work together to reduce asbestos exposure.
RSR Law Ltd and SapphireClaims.com believe it is crucially important that anyone who may be working with or close to asbestos is aware of the potential dangers and we fully support Global Asbestos Awareness Week, organised by the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), which runs next week from 1st to 7th April 2015.

The ADAO highlight that Asbestos is a proven human carcinogen with no ‘safe level’ of exposure and has been demonstrated to cause asbestosis, lung and gastrointestinal cancers.  Exposure to asbestos occurs through inhalation of minute fibres, which are invisible and odourless, that are released into the air where asbestos is disturbed or crumbly.  These inhaled fibres remain in the lungs causing irritation and scarring (asbestosis) and can cause cancer, including the aggressive cancer, mesothelioma.

Globally, despite the well-known dangers, Asbestos is only banned in 55 counties, and according to World Health Organization estimates about 125 million people are exposed to Asbestos in the workplace globally and in 2004 there were 107,000 deaths from occupational exposure to Asbestos in the world.

In the UK, although Asbestos was banned in 1999, it is still present in many buildings built before then, having been used in a broad range of building products.  In the UK, the people most likely to be at risk of exposure are those workers involved in refurbishment, maintenance and similar trades and without proper training and equipment the risks of exposure are still high.  Given also that the onset of Asbestos-related diseases can be delayed for decades, far from being a historical threat, Asbestos is still a danger.  New diagnoses and deaths are still occurring, with over 2500 deaths from Mesothelioma in 2013 and over 5000 deaths from asbestos related diseases overall each year (Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Data).

“We believe that limiting and preventing exposure to asbestos now will mean a reduction in the numbers of people developing asbestos related diseases and deaths because of it in the future.  It is of paramount importance that employers, employees and self-employed people working particularly in the trades are aware of the risks of asbestos exposure and take appropriate action to limit exposure.  This includes training, the use of personal protective equipment where appropriate and use of specialist licensed contractors where required.  Employers have a duty of care to protect their employees at work and increased awareness of the dangers can help everyone involved understand why it is so important to work to prevent further harm.” – Andrew Paine, Director, RSR Law Ltd.

Global Asbestos Awareness Week 2015 runs from 1st to 7th April and is intended to raise awareness of asbestos and prevent asbestos-related disease.  For more information, visit:  Link: http://www.asbestosdiseaseawareness.org/archives/10434
