Asbestos is a mineral fiber that is that was commonly used in building materials during the 1900’s until it was later banned in most EU countries, including Ireland & the UK in the early 2000s, due to the profound health risk that was discovered by construction workers who came into contact with the toxic asbestos fibers that was emitted if the asbestos was cracked or broken. These toxic fibres claimed the lives of many workers & their families due to the lack of knowledge surrounding the risk of asbestos.
