Marking Workers’ Memorial Day, a talk by Geofrey Tweedale.
The devastating legacy of asbestos will be with us for many years to come; yet the dangers of the mineral have been recognised for over a century. The historical record shows that for decades government, industry, and medicine endorsed the continued manufacture and use of asbestos – and the inevitable exposure of workers (and others) to hazardous dust – while hindering a full appreciation of the risks.
This talk is part of the Invisible Histories series - admission free, all welcome, light refreshments afterwards.
