The BLF has launched Mesothelioma Day 2010 by revealing that in a survey of 2,000 homeowners, nearly two-thirds (65 per cent) are not confident about identifying asbestos-containing materials in the home.
 
In addition to the survey, the BLF has teamed up with DIY TV presenter Craig Phillips, winner of Big Brother 1, to promote the campaign.
 
There is an Action Mesothelioma Day video presented by Phillips, which can be viewed online. An online competition has also been launched.
