This book provides an outlook into the use of Asbestos containing Materials (ACM) in Ghana, compared with what has been developed in the European Union (EU) and UK in particular.
The fatal risks of Asbestos were overlooked in many instances due to ignorance.
The background of Asbestos as a widely used material and its related sickness is discussed first, followed by the acceptance by the Western World and EU countries and UK in particular of Asbestos Regulation Car 2006, came into force on November 13, 2006 (Asbestos Regulations – S12006/2739).
These regulations bring together the three previous sets of Regulations covering the prohibition of Asbestos, the control of Asbestos at work and Asbestos Licensing.
The regulations prohibit the importation, supply and use of all forms of Asbestos.
Emphasis is placed on practical approach to the use of ACM in UK and what can be done in Ghana of which other countries in Africa are not exceptions.
The author's practical experience as an Area engineer for civil engineering consultancy, a site engineer for major contractor, and work with a Polytechnic as a lecturer, and his role as a consultant on maintenance of stuctures, give him the ideal background from which to present this unique problem-centred approach to the management of Asbestos.
