Several campaign groups have joined forces in order to implement the Great British Asbestos in Buildings Survey 2011, which is intended to raise levels of awareness among employers about the dangers of the substance that can cause diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma.
In addition, the research will seek to review the current legislation in place over asbestos regulation to determine whether more could be done by the legal system to make sure organisations prevent their workers from being exposed to the material.
Annette Brooke, chair of the Asbestos in Schools Group, labelled the study a "welcome step in the right direction".
"It is so vital that we highlight the dangers surrounding asbestos and I hope that participation in this survey is as wide as possible," she added.
