Asbestos in Bunsen burner gauzes

The HSE has alerted us to the possible contamination of a small number of ceramic-centred, Bunsen burner gauzes with asbestos.

At present this it limited to two suppliers who are not major players in Scotland but further testing is being done and HSE’s investigations are ongoing. If further suppliers become involved, we will keep you updated.

In the interim, detailed guidance can be found here.
