the image below, for example.
Would you consider that advising workers not to inhale blue asbestos
is a reasonable way of protecting their health, and preventing ill-health?
Incidentally - this sign was attached to the boilerhouse of a National
Health Service hospital in Britain, and the photo was taken in the early1980's.
With attitudes such as those illustrated by the photo, it is no surprise
that hundreds of workers are sadly still dying every year from mesothelioma
caused by occupational exposure to asbestos
several years previously, and the number is set to continue rising, before
it eventually falls.
