Do you recognise this fine building? It is in the Forton (Lancaster) Service area on the M6 Motorway. It is clad in Asbestos to this day. How do I know?
Well I have been talking to x tuners employe used to work in the Turners Asbestos Cement (TAC) Drawing Office as a Draughtsman. Much to he’s shame, Quite a Intresting CHAP with lots to say to he’s credit TOLD me one project he had a hand in was this tower's design. and he always keept an eye on it, as I pass, to see if they have removed the Asbestos panels. They never have.
Needless to say he as lung issues occupation asthma AND am sure those who worked in the offices was lied to and just as much at risk as those ON work floor.
As to is shame WELL I told him is got nothing to be ashamed about THE lies involved Health boards and professional bodies owners nothing he was involved in just a other victom of Uk Asbestos industry.
But how lucky am I to have found be talking to Turners Asbestos Cement draughtsman TURNERs would be realling if they knew.
Also Trafford council Manchester sent me letter re my Turners Asbestos cement factory freedom of information request ASKING me for address of old Turners Asbestos Manchester factory.
But like I pointed out was only one Asbestos cement factory called Turners Asbestos cemtmet In Trafford Park Manchester.
And asked our public electicted council IS that reflection of workers safety environmental protection policy that went on at time Turners was in full swing.
