Online: Asbestos Awareness
Asbestos was once a widely used material: cheap, strong, fire/water resistant, and sound-absorbent; it was valuable in many applications – from building to automotive manufacturing to a range of fire resistant products. All forms of asbestos have thin fibres which the substance is made up of. It is these fibres that pose a threat to humans – when the fibres are inhaled, they can cause serious damage to the lungs.
