But before we move on to the asbestos awareness test itself, let's first cover some of the basic facts about asbestos.
This will provide you with some knowledge that will allow you to answer the asbestos awareness quiz questions.
So to start......
What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral substance found in the form of clumps of fibers in soil and rock on earth all over the world.
But asbestos is not just one type of mineral: the name "asbestos" actually refers to a group of silicate minerals with the same fibrous nature.
When in its pure form, asbestos can be mixed with cement, paper, plastic, fabric and other materials to make them stronger.
Asbestos has been widely used in common building materials such as tiles, tiles and pipe insulation due to its well-known properties including being heat resistant, being a good insulator and not conducting electricity.
Spray coatings used for pipe insulation are the most friable form of asbestos used in the UK.
There are actually 6 different ones.types of asbestos, but they are classified into 2 main types:crisotilo(white asbestos) which is the most common form andanfibol
Materials containing asbestos only become dangerous when they are damaged or altered in some way, as this is when the deadly fibers are released into the atmosphere.
Asbestos fibers pollute the air and surrounding areas.
How does asbestos harm health?
Exposure to asbestos fibers can be very dangerous for our health.
This is because the fibers are very small (invisible to the naked eye) and, once transported through the air, they can remain and eventually be inhaled.
Breathing asbestos fibers into the lungs can lead to serious health problems, as once the fibers are there, the body is unable to remove them naturally.
As a consequence, over a long period of time, at least 15 years or more, asbestos fibers grow and cause diseases such asmesothelioma, plural plate,lung canceryasbestosis
People who smoke are at greater risk of developing lung cancer or asbestosis than non-smokers.
Studies show that a person is more likely to develop an asbestos-related illness if they have been exposed to asbestos frequently over a long period of time, particularly the younger they are at the time of exposure, and the chances increase even further. is a smoker.
What are the asbestos regulations?
The asbestos control regulations of 2012are primarily intended for non-residential properties, but may also apply to some common areas in domestic premises.
And theduty holderresponsibility (manager or building owner) to inform contractors who must carry out maintenance or renovation work on the premises of any known asbestos.
On a domestic property, this responsibility would rest with the landlord or managing agent.
Under the regulations, contractors also have a responsibility to immediately report any material suspected of containing asbestos that they discover on site to the person in charge or their supervisor.
Suspect materials will need to be tested for asbestos and samples will be sent to an independent laboratory.
Once the test results are received, it will be necessary to decide whether the asbestos can be left in situ and encapsulated to make it safe, or whether it must be removed entirely.
In any case, only those who have been properly trained in asbestos awareness can work with asbestos materials.
Trained operators must wear the correct PPE and RPE and undergo regular health checks as well as annual refresher training.
And depending on the risk factors involved, a contractor may or may not need aHSE licenseto remove any asbestos material.
Even if a permit is not required to remove (lower risk asbestos materials), the contractor must still be trained to handle asbestos.
How to dispose of asbestos safely
Asbestos must be disposed of safely and cannot simply be disposed of with household waste or thrown away.
Instead, all asbestos materials must be double wrapped, securely sealed and labeled before being taken to a local asbestos disposal site (contact your local council for details).
Some companies that hold an asbestos waste transportation license will be able to collect asbestos waste at their facility and take it to the local asbestos waste removal facility.
Please note, however, that if you decide to handle any type of asbestos yourself,have toWear disposable clothing consisting of gloves, coveralls and a filter respirator.
Otherwise, leave the handling of asbestos materials in the hands of properly trained persons.
