The health risks of asbestos, historically a widely used building material, are well documented.

Still, today, thousands of people either pass away or are affected by respiratory diseases, directly relating to their exposure to asbestos. This includes lung cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma and COPD.

Fact is that incidence of mesothelioma in South Africa ranks among the highest in the world.

According to nearly 30 percent of mesothelioma cases in South Africa are tied to environmental exposure, of which over 70 percent affect women and children.

With the country being a former leader in asbestos production (a thriving industry for over a century), the problem remains a major challenge to the mining and manufacturing industries, especially.

“We take pride in the Removal of harmful asbestos material through Southey’s trademark service reliability and impeccable safety track record.”
