Two suppliers of scientific equipment were found to have supplied schools with Asbestos containing products.
It came to the attention of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that the two suppliers had sold mesh gauzes with asbestos-containing centres which are traditionally used on top of tripods and Bunsen burners. Although efforts have been made to prevent further supply by the companies identified, the situation is still going to have a major impact on those affected, typically secondary schools, colleges and other facilities which use those types of equipment.
Anyone who thinks they may be affected should contact their supplier to see if there is any possibility that their equipment could contain Asbestos, if there are any doubts as to whether the equipment has been affected then dispose of them as Asbestos waste, details of how to do that safely can be found here
