Asbestos has been used for over 2000 years in a bunch of products and in the UK alone over 1 million commercial, industrial and public buildings contain asbestos material. Between the 1950s and the mid-1980s asbestos was used in a wide variety of products such as thermal insulation, fireproofing, electrical insulation and building materials. Even up until 1999 some asbestos products were still being used. During this period and especially in the 60s and 70s any building that is commercial or industrial and had extensive renovations or was built within this time is more than likely to contain asbestos in some form or another. According to findings by the HSE asbestos is responsible for 4500 deaths each year. The reasons for this is because it causes four main diseases. These are mesothelioma (which is fatal), lung cancer (almost always fatal) asbestosis (not always fatal but can be debilitating) and diffuse pleural thickening (which is not fatal).
