ASBESTOS – KNOW THE RISKS

Around 5,000 people die per year of asbestos related diseases.

Workers can easily be exposed without knowing it – either from their own activities or work tasks undertaken by other people and buildings built before the year 2000 commonly used asbestos in a variety of materials, including floors, walls, ceilings, insulation, electrical products.

And, it’s very easy to unwittingly disturb these lethal fibres. A wide range of routine maintenance tasks that are apparently low risk can easily release asbestos fibres. For example, simply drilling or sanding a surface can make the fibres airborne.
