Thompsons solicitors maintain RMT's register for members who have been exposed to asbestos at work. It is important to stress that just because someone has been exposed to asbestos, it does not mean that they will necessarily develop any condition because of it.
The development of a serious illness as a result of exposure to asbestos is rare. However, the register will serve as an important record of asbestos exposure in the event that an individual does become ill at a later stage.
In addition, details held on the register in connection with asbestos in a particular location may help others who wish to make a claim in the future, by providing important evidence and witnesses.
All enquiries relating to the register should be made to Thompsons on 0800 587 7516. Retired members should also be advised of the register so that they can report past exposure as appropriate.
- In the unfortunate event that a member does develop any condition associated with exposure to asbestos, they should be advised to complete the form L1 and either pass it to their branch secretary or send to the legal officer at RMT head office.
