Until 1999 large amounts of asbestos-containing materials were used for a range of construction purposes, leaving many buildings in Britain and Northern Ireland that still contain asbestos.
If asbestos is in good condition and undisturbed, it poses no threat However if the condition has degraded or it is disturbed asbestos fibres can be released into the air which, if inhaled, can cause a number of serious lung diseases, including mesothelioma.
To prevent this, surveys must be carried out anywhere that asbestos is believed to be present so an assessment can be made about the risks and how they can be best managed.
