Asbestos can be found in any industrial or residential building built or refurbished before the year 2000. It is in many of the common materials used in the building trade that you may come across during your work.
The HSE have produced some great Asbestos task sheets to help identify common areas for Asbestos Containing Materials. TEAM Safety Services use these within our Accredited UKATA Asbestos Awareness Training.
