Overview of Asbestos
    What is Asbestos?
    Construction Uses
     Health Effects
1. What is Asbestos?
              Asbestos Is…
•   Naturally-occurring
    mineral
•   Mined from the
    ground
•   Odorless
•   Tasteless
•   Made up of very small
    fibers
             Asbestos Rock
Asbestos in the Ground   Close-up of Asbestos Rock
       Characteristics of Asbestos
•     Indestructible
•     Resistant to chemicals, heat, cold
•     Very stable
•     Excellent insulator
•     Versatile
              Deadly Asbestos
Australia                       Worldwide
•   High rate of asbestos       •   Over 107,000 deaths
    deaths                          each year
•   Over 550 deaths from        •   125 million exposed at
    mesothelioma in 2007            work
•   More deaths expected in
    next 40 years
•   Increase in female deaths
•   25% increase in claims
    from 2003 to 2008
  Why is Asbestos Dangerous?
•   Some asbestos fibers    •   There is no know
    are so small they can       safe level of
    get into the lungs.         asbestos exposure!
•   When these tiny             Any exposure to
    asbestos fibers are         asbestos could
    breathed in they can        cause disease.
    cause serious health
    problems, especially
    in the lungs.
             Types of Asbestos
•     Amosite
•     Chrysotile
•     Tremolite
•     Actinolite
•     Anthophyllite
•     Crocidolite
              Chrysotile
•   Most common
•   White asbestos
                 Amosite
•   2nd most common
•   Brown asbestos
                Crocidolite
•   Most dangerous
•   Blue asbestos
2. Health Effects
How Asbestos Gets into the
         Body
             •   Inhalation
                 (breathing) is most
                 common way
                 asbestos fibers
                 enter the body.
             •   Respirable fibers
                 get into the lungs.
             •   Remain in pleura
                 (air sacs)
         Asbestos Diseases
•   Asbestosis
•   Mesothelioma
•   Lung cancer
               Asbestosis
•   Serious
•   Long-term
•   Lung disease
             Lung Cancer
•   Largest number of deaths from asbestos
    exposure.
•   Smoking increases risk.
              Mesothelioma
•   Rare
•   From asbestos
    exposure only
•   Always fatal
•   No cure
            Determining Factors
•     Length of time of exposure
•     Amount of exposure
•     Type of asbestos
•     Inhalation vs. ingestion
•     Smoking
•     Age
Exposure and Risk
3. History of Asbestos Use
                 Ancient Asbestos

•     Wicks
•     Candles
•     Building
•     Fabric
•     Armor
Industrial Revolution
              20 th   Century
•   Offices
•   Schools
•   Homes
Asbestos in Australia

•  Mined
•   Wittenoom
•  Heavily used
1945-80
•  Import and new
use banned
•  Still in many
buildings

Historic Uses of Asbestos
Asbestos in Household
      Products
More Historic Uses
Cigarettes
  Health Concerns Emerge


•   Studies show a strong link between
   respiratory cancers and exposure to
   asbestos in humans.
4. Where is Asbestos Found?
       Asbestos in Construction
•   Insulation                  •     Siding
     –   Heat                   •     Cement
     –   Cold                   •     Shingles

When is Asbestos Dangerous?
•   In poor condition
•   Likely to be further damaged or to
    deteriorate
•   Likely to be disturbed due to work in the
    area
•   In area where workers may be exposed
Who is at Risk?
           Workers in Building
                Trades
Not Just Building Trades
At Risk: Not Just Workers
            Asbestos Ban
•   1989: bans started
•   From 31 December 2003: all asbestos
    banned in workplaces in Australia
•   Few exemptions
•   Goal: asbestos-free workplaces
   VICTORIAN LEGISLATION
•   Victoria not signed up to the Model
    Legislation yet
•   Currently controlled by Occupational
    Health and Safety Regulations 2007
•   Very similar to Federal legislation
   ASBESTOS ON A PROPERTY

•   If building constructed before 2004, then there
    is a chance that the building does have
    asbestos somewhere.

•   If a building was built before 1990, then there is
    a greater chance of having asbestos both
    internally and externally.
 WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?
Residential properties don t legally have to
have an asbestos audit done...
BUT
Be prepared for tradesman to refuse to work
on the property until a register is available.

Commercials properties constructed < 2004
MUST have a register and Management
Plan.
