What is asbestos? The search for more affordable and longer lasting building products introduced the use of asbestos into Canada’s buildings in between 1900 – 2000. Asbestos is a fiberous material that adds great strength and durability to a wide variety of building products such as wall board, stucco, spray coating, flooring materials and many more.
The use of asbestos products is now banned in Canada so we must deal with the consequences. WorkSafeBC calls Asbestos the greatest hazard in the work place. These fibers become airborne and create a health hazard. A 10 year study revealed that out of 307 worker fatalities, 145 workers died of asbestos related illnesses.
