Asbestos is a dangerous material that was commonly used to build materials due to its durability and usability in the industrial and construction industries. Asbestos is classified as a carcinogen and can also cause numerous respiratory problems including: Asbestosis and Mesothelioma. Asbestos has been used as a general insulation for pipes, boilers, tanks and ducts.

During building renovations, expansions or demolitions, this material can be disrupted and becomes an airborne carcinogen as well as a danger to anyone in the vicinity.
