FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What buildings are affected by asbestos?
Potentially all buildings, no matter what type of business is carried out in them. Areas often affected include the common areas of residential rented properties, such as halls, stair wells, lift shafts and roof spaces.
What do I need to do?
Regulatory asbestos verifications are different from country to country. In all developed countries, there is a legal obligation to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises. Everyone must take action - even if all you have to do is co-operate with the dutyholder. If you are a dutyholder you must: find out whether your building contains asbestos and what condition it is in, assess the risk and make a plan to manage that risk.
What are the health effects of asbestos exposure?
Exposure to asbestos may result in a potential health risk because persons breathing the air may breathe in asbestos fibers. Continued exposure can increase the amount of fibers that remain in the lung. Asbestos workers have increased chances of getting two principal types of cancer: cancer of the lung tissue itself and mesothelioma, a cancer of the thin membrane that surrounds the lung and other internal organs.
