Science - metal gauze mats which contain asbestos

Published
03.09.2018

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has been made aware that two UK laboratory supply companies have supplied schools and potentially other users with gauze mats which contain asbestos.

The metal gauze mats are designed for use over Bunsen burners. The HSE has ensured that both of the supply companies concerned immediately ceased supply of the gauze mats and are overseeing arrangements to contact affected customers and provide precautionary advice on how the mats should be disposed of safely.
