Asbestos in buildings

Anonymous user 23 July 2019 - 9.16 AM

Are we still using asbestos in UK building work? Just wanting to know as we have a corrugated shed which was built only 5 years ago and it looks like it could be Asbestos

If it’s defiantly only 5 years old then it will not be asbestos but a modern looks life without the harmful fibres But as with anything that you suspect to be asbestos and can’t positively identify get a second opinion from a expert as it becomes harmful once broken up and the very small fibres get inhaled If in doubt get it checked out

If your buildng is 5 years old it will definitely not contain asbestos 1979 they slowly phased out asbestos production and in 1999 all asbestos was banned in england. Corrugated concrete fibre board Is still widely used in england and to the eye looks like asbestos
