Asbestos material is the fibrous form of mineral silicates belonging to the serpentine and amphibole groups of rock-forming minerals. The most significant types include chrysotile, crocidolite and amosite (white, brown or blue asbestos). In Australia more chrysotile than amphibole was mined until 1939. Consumption of asbestos peaked in 1975. Asbestos is the binding material used in many products. The material was so good that it was used in over 3,000 products in and around the home and to a small degree, in cars.
In the past, exposure to asbestos was very high on some industries and jobs, particularly those working in and around the asbestos mines. Tradesmen working with and installing the material were also exposed to asbestos.
It is now still not known what is a safe level of exposure. For this reason it is important that each householder and commercial premises have asbestos identified so that safe handling procedures can be followed.
Hobart Building Inspectors suggest you take a safety first approach and have an inspection and allow for sample testing.
