If you have been exposed to asbestos then there is a chance that you could, at a stage in later life, be diagnosed with an asbestos related disease.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that due to its versatility has been used for many decades in the building and construction industries.
There are actually three different types of asbestos:
- Crocidolite – also known as Blue Asbestos which was predominantly used in the textile industry until it was banned in 1985.
- Amosite – also known as Brown Asbestos which was predominantly used in insulation and was also banned in 1985.
- Chrysotile – also known as White Asbestos which was used in both the textile and building industries and has been banned since 1999.
Asbestos is regarded as being potentially very dangerous as it is made up of millions of tiny fibres, which, when inhaled, can cause a variety of different health conditions.
