Action Mesothelioma Day - tribute to Abdul Chowdry
Feb 25, 2008 - Rochdale Online
The ceremony to mark Action Mesothelioma Day will be held at the Asbestos Memorial in the memorial Gardens opposite the Town Hall. 12 noon, this Wednesday 27 February.
A bench and tree have been donated by friends of Abdul Chowdry.
"My Commission colleagues were shocked by his untimely death. We remember Abdul as a good colleague and a tireless campaigner, dedicated to protecting people at work.
"Abdul and his family are in my thoughts on this important day on which his life and work will be commemorated."
Since the last ceremony was held 12 months ago the HSE estimate that
about 2000 people have died of the asbestos cancer mesothelioma and
about 4000 in total from all asbestos related disease. The trend continues
to rise. This is because death from asbestos has a time lag of about
20-50 from the date of causative exposure.
