Asbestos has been used extensively in industry and in construction in the last century. Its use has since been prohibited and there are no new applications of this material in the EU. However, many buildings built before the asbestos ban still incorporate the material in their construction, and its presence is potentially dangerous to anyone working or living in close proximity to it.
There are serious health implications for those who have been repeatedly exposed to asbestos dust. The challenge in this century is to deal with asbestos in the safest way possible. If the asbestos is in good condition it should ideally be left undisturbed. If it is necessary for the asbestos to be removed, it must be removed by a specialist who is licenced to carry out the work and who is aware of the risks and hazards.
