Prospect’s asbestos register and claiming compensation

Last updated: 03 Feb 2020

Prospect pursues compensation claims for asbestos-related illness every year. We sometimes need help from members’ former colleagues to help prove that asbestos is involved. But many sufferers have lost touch with former colleagues by the time their condition comes to light.

We have set up a register to record details of members’ workplace exposure to asbestos. So far, more than 1,600 people have volunteered this information.

If you have worked with asbestos, please add your details to the register by emailing

Or download a registration form from our library.

You can also download our privacy notice.

The register will be used if you ever need to make a claim on your own behalf, or to help pursue claims on behalf of your colleagues or former colleagues.

Prospect lawyers will search the register for witnesses who worked for the same employer or in the same workplace and so provide evidence in support of members’ claims. This will help them succeed in claims for Prospect members or their bereaved families and can bring financial peace of mind and justice to those affected by asbestos-related illnesses.
