The meeting will aim to provide a greater understanding of any potential health risks involved in the use of this material, and what protection measures and information should be made available to construction workers handling it.  This topic is especially important for Brussels decision-makers as the insulation of homes and workplaces is high on the political agenda as we strive to use more and better insulation given the challenges of climate change and high energy prices.

Brussels decision makers have a responsibility to educate themselves about any health risks that might exist for those using mineral wool in our homes and businesses, in the production, installation, removal and disposal of MMVF.
