Working Safely (Continued) Copy

Despite being banned, asbestos is still present in the majority of buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000.

Even though an asbestos survey may have been carried out, and the asbestos removed, it does not guarantee that the building is free of asbestos. This is because asbestos was used in so many products, that it is very difficult to find them all during a survey.

For this reason, you need to stay alert, and if you discover suspect materials, stop work immediately and report to your supervisor.
