Asbestos Use in Townsville

Asbestos is a great concern in Australia since it was one of the highest users of asbestos material per capita in the world, up until the middle 1980s. It is reported that one-third of all homes built in Australia contain asbestos products. This is why there needs to be contnued awareness towards this issue.

Asbestos-containing materials were commonly used in products to provide fireproofing and insulation properties. They were also used in other construction materials due to their strength, flexibility, resistant from heat and electricity, chemical inertness and affordability.

Asbestos was widely used not only in residential buildings but also in commercial properties, between 1920 and 1989. Asbestos materials were heavily used in houses. There are many areas in homes where asbestos materials can be found including:

  • Roof sheeting,
  • Guttering,
  • Eaves,
  • Wall sheeting,
  • Vinyl sheet flooring,
  • Flexible building boards,
  • Fencing, carports,
  • And concrete formwork.

Although this material is considered to be dangerous, it only poses a serious health risk when its fibres become loose and airborne. Breathing airborne fibres can cause the scarring of the lungs tissue, and even worse, it can cause lung cancers. After 1989, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established regulations related to asbestos.

You can check for signs of asbestos-containing materials on your own, but the asbestos testing process should be done only by a licensed worker using special equipment.

Asbestos products cannot be detected merely by looking at them. Try to look for warning signs of older materials that are worn out or damaged. Asbestos can be categorised into two types which are friable and non-friable asbestos. Both of them pose a significant health risk to all workers and others if the products are not properly maintained or removed safely.

Potential health risks are evident where:

  • asbestos is present
  • it is weathered or damaged
  • a maintenance or a demolition project involving asbestos materials is conducted.

If you suspect the presence of asbestos products, you need to call Asbestos Watch Townsville to conduct asbestos testing prior to asbestos removal work to ensure the safety of your building occupants.

The risk of exposure is broad and has the potential to impact the entire Australian community. Not only will it give impact on people but also environment. It was discovered that people who used to work with asbestos were greatly affected by the asbestos-related diseases, such as lung cancer, asbestosis and also the rarest cancer known as Mesothelioma. Many died and suffered from the asbestos fibres. To minimise the fatal effect, it is wise to be for at risk home or building owners to make sure their places are asbestos free. Performing asbestos Testing is the initial step of making sure we are safe from this hazardous material.
