Mr M, Pipe Fitter / Welder

Posted: 10th Apr 17 12:04 PM

Mr M was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2011. He had been exposed to asbestos in the early 1970s working for Southern Heating Limited as an apprentice pipe fitter and subsequently a pipefitter/welder. His job involved much work in old buildings, and many schools and hospitals that had boiler systems. His job involved the removal of asbestos from pipes and lagging and he was exposed to considerable amounts of asbestos dust. Mr M was just 16 years of age when he started his work with asbestos.

Southern Heating Limited were no longer trading, but the insurers were identified. The claim settled for £225,000 in 2011.
