  • 1. ASBESTOS
  • 2. ASBESTOS
    (from Greekἄσβεστος or asbestinon, meaning "unquenchable" or "inextinguishable")
  • 3. ASBESTOS
    The inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause serious illnesses, including malignant lung cancer, mesothelioma (a formerly rare cancer strongly associated with exposure to amphibole asbestos), and asbestosis (a type of pneumoconiosis). Long exposure to high concentrations of asbestos fibers is more likely to cause health problems, as asbestos exists in the ambient air at low levels, which itself does not cause health problems.
  • 4. ASBESTOS
    European Union has banned all use of asbestosand extraction, manufacture and processing of asbestos products.
  • 5. ASBESTOS
    Asbestos is a mineral fiber that has been used commonly in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire-retardant. Because of its fiber strength and heat resistant properties, asbestos has been used for a wide range of manufactured goods, mostly in building materials (roofing shingles, ceiling and floor tiles, paper products, and asbestos cement products), friction products (automobile clutch, brake, and transmission parts), heat-resistant fabrics, packaging, gaskets, and coatings.
  • 6. ASBESTOS
    When asbestos-containing materials are damaged or disturbed by repair, remodeling or demolition activities, microscopic fibers become airborne and can be inhaled into the lungs, where they can cause significant health problems.
  • 7. Most Common Sources of Asbestos Exposure:
    Workplace exposure to people that work in industries that mine, make or use asbestos products and those living near these industries, including:
  • 8. Most Common Sources of Asbestos Exposure:
    the construction industry (particularly building demolition and renovation activities),
    the manufacture of asbestos products (such as textiles, friction products, insulation, and other building materials), and
    during automotive brake and clutch repair work
  • 9. Most Common Sources of Asbestos Exposure:
    Deteriorating, damaged, or disturbed asbestos-containing products such as insulation, fireproofing, acoustical materials, and floor tiles.
