Why Can Asbestos Dust or Fibres be Dangerous to Your Health?

Time: 2021-07-02

You must observe safety precautions when removing or working with asbestos, otherwise you risk

exposing yourself and your family to long-term health risks

There is no safe level of exposure to asbestos fibres!

If asbestos is disturbed it can release dangerous fine particles of dust containing asbestos fibres

Breathing in dust containing asbestos fibres can cause asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a cancer which most often occurs in the lining of the lung. There is no cure

The rates of malignant mesothelioma (an incurable cancer) are expected to rise from 2012 to 2020

Can I Avoid Being Exposed?

Asbestos is so common that everyone has been around it at some point. It’s in the air, water, and soil. But when you’re exposed at such low levels, it’s unlikely to make you sick.

When buildings are demolished and homes are remodeled, asbestos can fill the air. It happens as the materials that contain it are destroyed. Home maintenance and repairs may also release the toxic fibers. You have less to worry about if you’re around asbestos products that haven’t been damaged in any way.
