About Us

London Hazards Centre provides an Indispensible Service for Londoners

Our objectives:

  • Developing cooperative relations and joint campaigns, conferences and other events with sister national organisations and with London area organisations engaged in promoting health and safety in the home, workplace and community.
  • Providing easily-accessible health and safety advice, education and training, particularly targeted at minorities and hard-to-reach groups most exposed to risk.

London Hazards Centre was established as a company and a charity in 1984 and has been helping Londoners enforce their right to live and work in safe,  healthy environments ever since.

London Hazards Centre works with trade unions,  tenants groups and community based campaigns.  It is run by the members who elect the Directors and Trustees at the Annual General Meeting.

London Hazards Centre provides an indispensible service for Londoners through its support for – amongst others – the Construction Safety Campaign, the Battersea Crane Disaster Action Group, and through its asbestos support work.

  • The GMB L43 Lowestoft Branch are unveiling a memorial bench in a local park on Thursday. Is it possible you have some information on fatalities at work 2014/15/16 so we can tell the local paper?

    Thank you

    • Ann, This si great to hear. I am from Greater Manchester Hazards Centre / Hazards Campaign and FACK, and we have this info. and provide resources for people like you organising IWMD events. I have only just seen your comment so realise it is too late for this year. But please contact us : mail@gmhazards.org.uk Hilda Palmer

  • Hi

    The branch would like to re-affiliate to Hazards. How much is it and is it to the address in Seven Sisters.



  • Hi, wondered if you can advise on asbestos concerns; I am a Council Tenant advised in 2006 that my flat contained no asbestos, in the “Welcome Pack” provided for new tenants. Last year, we were offered kitchen /bathroom refurb, as asbestos in these areas could be removed at the same time. I was not impressed by the Contractor’s attitude or work completed in neighbours ‘ flats, so I declined. I asked what safeguards were there when the flat above was stripped out by the Private Buyer, i.e. Who supervised their asbestos removal? I received no reply on this matter except a garbled phone call.I believe the Council have been negligent in not supervising Leaseholder’s activities and telling me 8 years later that I have asbestos in my panels in my kitchen and bathroom, painted over with emulsion to resemble hardboard. Myself and Council employees have been exposed by maintenance work on or around said asbestos.
    I was rehoused here as my estate was demolished for 2012 Olympics; I contacted you then due to pollution from Channel Tunnel works between 2002-2006. Now I find my flat had asbestos all along, as do many other properties. Thanks for any pointers you can offer?

  • My name is Tom Tevlin and I am the deputy editor of Safety Management, the magazine of the British Safety Council (www.britsafe.org).

    I was wondering if you would be interested in writing a letter on any aspect of H&S at work for publication in our magazine?

    Our readers are health, safety and HR managers in all sectors of business and industry in the UK and overseas (8,000 readers), so this is a good opportunity to raise awareness of issues of concern.

    Please let me know what you think. I can send on some examples of published letters if you would like to see them.

    Letters can be up to 350 words long.

    Should you be interested the deadline for our next issue is 15 September, though we can accept letters at any time.

    Kind regards,


  • Dear sirs

    I’m hoping you can help me. My firm, Boyes Turner LLP, is instructed by the family of the late Frederick Copus, who worked at Woolwich ferry from 1957 to 1995. He died from mesothelioma, an asbestos related disease.

    We have a copy of issue 62 of The Daily Hazard, from April 1999, within which it is mentioned that the London Hazards Centre was involved in attending the ferry’s Safety Committee meeting and giving advice when asbestos was found on the Woolwich ferries.

    I should be very grateful if you would contact me to let me know whether there is any information you could provide about exposure to asbestos on the ferries. Any available information would be helpful, including records and people’s recollections. If you have any suggestions of any other organisations I could get in touch with, I’d be grateful to hear of those too.

    I will hope to hear from you.

    Many thanks

    Yours faithfully
