“The Magic Mineral”
It is estimated that asbestos has been used in varying concentrations in as many as 3000 separate products worldwide due to its incredible properties:
Asbestos is a mineral which is made up of minute fibres measuring less than 3 microns long by 1 micron thick. Put into context, a human hair is between 60 and 140 microns thick!
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) has identified asbestos fibre exposure as the single greatest cause of occupational related disease in the UK.
In the UK, there are currently over 4,000 deaths per annum attributed to asbestos related disease. That is 11 people per day.
The death rate is estimated to increase to over 10,000 per annum
