Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was used in many products from the late 1800s to early 1970s.
Archaeologists discovered traces of asbestos in debris dating some 750,000 years ago. Asbestos was used by the Ancient Egyptians, by the Middle Ages was used by the Italians, the French, China, Russia, Persia and almost all of the world’s greatest civilizations in the most unprobeable ways for clothing and utensils. In the late 1800s with the industrial revolution the manufacturing and commercialization of asbestos exploded due to its cost-effectiveness and wide range of possible uses from bank notes, in PPE for fire brigades, racing driver’s uniforms and many more. Even though its adverse health effects were first known in 1897, asbestos was mass-produced and found on almost everyday objects such as ironing boards, hair dryers, oven gloves and in most construction materials.
If you live, work, study or even go to have a drink in a building that was built before 1999 when asbestos was officially banned in the UK you are almost certain that you are in a building that contains asbestos. It is estimated that in the UK 5,000 people every year lose their life to asbestos related illness.
