Asbestos has been around for over 2000 years and can be found in over one million commercial, industrial and public buildings that contain asbestos material. In the UK 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, during this period, especially between the 60s and 70s, any commercial or industrial building that was either built or extensively renovated would more than likely contain asbestos in some form or another. According to the HSE asbestos is responsible for 4500 deaths each year. The reason for this is because it causes four main diseases, these are mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening.
