    What is asbestos?

    Asbestos is actually a set of materials; six silicate minerals that occur naturally. They are known for their long and thin fibrous crystals which are easily released by abrasion. Each visible strand or fibre of the materials is composed of millions of smaller, microscopic fibrils.

    The materials were mined for use in building due to their properties of sounds absorption, tensile strength and affordability. However, in the late 20th century it began to become clear in public court cases that the material and the dust it created had significant health hazards.

    By the 1990s, the asbestos trade and use of the material were mostly phased out and banned, as victims of asbestosis and cancers caused by inhalation of the dust took successful claims against manufacturers and producers.

    Asbestos claims in Driffield

    Although the health hazards associated with asbestos have been known for some time now, many people each year still make asbestos claims in Driffield and around the UK. This is due to the long time period for asbestos-related health problems to emerge, an average of 35-40 years.
