Mesothelioma patrons - asbestos experts

Our patrons in the asbestos industry have made generous donations to our mesothelioma research fund.

We thank them for their generous donations, as we endeavour to find new ways to prevent, treat and cure lung disease.

Established in 1979, Shield Environmental Services specialise in the provision of asbestos, insulation, demolition, scaffolding, electrical and marine services.

We have the ability to undertake our services individually or as a complete package, offering our clients piece of mind with a one-stop-shop for their project requirements. Branches strategically placed throughout the UK enable us to provide national coverage, whilst maintaining competitive prices and ensuring projects are managed to the highest standards.

The safety of our workforce and clients is of primary concern; we have a dedicated team to ensure our health and safety practices are developed, implemented and managed effectively.

As an HSE licenced asbestos removal contractor, it is a great pleasure to support the British Lung Foundation’s Mesothelioma Research Fund and we are proud to become a Patron to the scheme.

"As a company we work tirelessly to prevent the future generations contracting diseases caused directly by Asbestos but also feel it is imperative we support those who have not been fortunate enough to be protected from the risks associated with such a dangerous product. It is our hope we can go some way to helping BLF in their plight."
