Where can Asbestos be found today?

Due to the unique properties of asbestos and its low economic value, asbestos was used widely across the UK in construction, shipbuilding and manufacturing throughout the 20th century and sadly was not completely banned until 1999.

Large amounts of asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) and products are still present in many public and private buildings, including many of our own homes. It is wrong to think that the risk of asbestos exposure is a thing of the past.

The HSE have produced a very helpful guide of where you may find asbestos today.
