Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is asbestos?
It is a naturally occurring mineral that was once frequently used in construction materials and other products.

What health hazards are associated with asbestos exposure?
Dangerous diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other cancers. Death is possible.

Is all asbestos dangerous?
No. Asbestos is dangerous when it is disturbed, allowing small asbestos fibers to become airborne. These are eventually inhaled by people, and this is what poses a health risk.

What's the best way to avoid health hazards associated with asbestos?
Identify materials containing asbestos, do not disturb them, and have them sealed/contained by experts if necessary (or have the risks otherwise reduced-but don't try to do this yourself).

What are some materials that commonly include asbestos?
Roofing shingles, brake linings, clutch pads, putties, caulks, cements, insulation, ceiling and floor tiles, wall and ceiling textures.
