"This is my first APIL conference and I am rather impressed. I will definitely be recommending to my colleagues!"
"The pace of the course was perfect and all of the topics were clearly outlined. Very thorough in all aspects of a claim and both speakers were excellent"

This intensive one-day course is aimed at trainees and practitioners wanting to re-skill themselves in this highly technical area of industrial disease practice so they can master the intricacies of running an asbestos disease claim.

The course is also suited to existing industrial disease specialists and team leaders seeking to refresh and update their know-how and expertise in this fast developing field of practice.

We will cover:

  • Use of asbestos and the diseases it causes
  • Evolving awareness of the hazard, proving foresight, variable standards for liability
  • De minimis exposure, asymptomatic diseases
  • The latest on the special causation rules for mesothelioma and lung cancer
