If a home or commercial property was built or renovated before 1990, it is likely to contain products with asbestos in them. More than 3,000 of these products were used in older homes and buildings, so always play it safe before doing any renovating or cleaning.
Asbestos products in good condition are not a risk to your health, but if it has been disturbed, broken, sanded, blasted with high pressure water or cut, it can become harmful. This is when asbestos fibres are released into the air and can be breathed in, putting your and others' health at risk. Remember, asbestos fibres are too small to see with the naked eye, but they are still dangerous.
This webinar is for businesses to learn more about where asbestos materials are commonly found in buildings, compliance issues auditors encounter when they conduct site visits, and asbestos requirements for operating out of premises built prior to 1990.
This webinar will help homeowners and DIYers learn more about where asbestos containing materials are commonly found in homes, how to manage it, safe methods for cleaning and information about removing up to 10m2 of non-friable asbestos.
