Hazard 4 - Asbestos

This hazard covers the presence of, and exposure to, asbestos fibres and manufactured mineral fibres (MMF) within dwellings.

Asbestos is a natural mineral fibre, which is a particularly effective fire resistant, insulation material. There are three main types of asbestos, chrysotile (white asbestos), and the amphibole forms crocidolite (blue asbestos) and amosite (brown asbestos).

The health risks from asbestos exposure are associated with inhalation. Risks from ingestion and skin contact are minimal.

Vulnerable Group: All ages
