ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT

 

Asbestos was widely used in the construction of buildings prior to the early 1980’s.  However, some forms of asbestos are still used in modern construction materials to this day.  The fire retarding, thermal, and weaving properties of the asbestos fibres made them an ingredient of choice in various building materials.

 

In recent times the health effects associated with exposure to asbestos fibres have become evident and governments have introduced regulations to protect workers from exposure to asbestos.
