Nothing asbestos related ever happens (or should happen) at Schiphol Airport without being run by Jeroen Kersten first!

The specific nature of an airport can lead to surprising and unexpected asbestos situations. Still, Jeroen makes a point of careful planning and putting policy into practice, focusing especially on prevention of exposure. Sometimes that is just not as easy as it sounds and he will explain why.
