Course Description

Asbestos is a naturally occurring material that used widely in manufactured products because of its heat-resistant and insulating properties. Asbestos also does not dissolve in water or evaporate. It is a friable material which means that small fibres and clumps of fibres can be released into the air. The release of asbestos fibres into the air can pose known health risks, including asbestosis a form of lung cancer..
