Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found in the earth’s surface. It contains strong fibres that have excellent durability, fire resistance and insulating properties. Asbestos fibres are 50 to 200 times thinner than a human hair.
These fibres can float in the air for a long time, can be invisible to the naked eye and can be breathed into the lungs. It is imperative that asbestos be removed as quickly and safely as possible whenever encountered.An alarming number of buildings built between 1960 and 1980 in Queensland still house dangerous asbestos fibres.
Asbestos is highly hazardous and needs to be removed and disposed quickly and safely by a team of well-equipped professionals. Asbestos exposure can lead to serious illness and death. Asbestos has been linked to lung cancer and has been proven to cause cardiac failure.
People who work with friable asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are at the greatest risk of exposure. Friable means that the ACM can be crumbled, pulverised, or reduced to powder by hand pressure when dry. Examples of friable ACMs include insulation materials, fireproofing materials, and acoustical materials often used in commercial settings.
