Asbestos Advice eBrit

Asbestos can be found in any building which was built prior to the year 2000 and causes around 5000 deaths every year.

Why is asbestos dangerous?

Asbestos containing materials are only hazardous when disturbed, if the material is in good condition and sealed then the risk is dramatically reduced.

When materials that contain asbestos are disturbed or damaged microscopic fibres are released into the air, the fibres are then inhaled and travel deep inside the lung where scar tissue is formed. From exposure to the symptoms and development of an asbestos related condition it can take from 10-60 years to develop.

The best way to prevent an asbestos related illness is to either stop or minimise exposure.
