One area that has been emphasised this year is the terrible toll that unsafe working environments involving asbestos have taken. Before the celebrations of Mayday it is good to remember the cost of work to many working people - and good to remember the solemn fact that there is still much to do in Britain, as in the rest of the world, before it can be said that everything has been done that can be done to protect people at work. It is also a reminder of the necessity for workplace organisation and vigilance.
