Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that was widely used in construction in the mid-20th century. It was valued for its strength, durability, and fire resistance. However, it was later discovered that inhalation of asbestos fibers can lead to serious health problems, including lung cancer and mesothelioma. As a result, asbestos was banned in the UK in 1999.
However, many buildings in Hampshire, and elsewhere in the UK, still contain asbestos, particularly in the form of asbestos siding. If you live or work in an older building that has asbestos siding, it is important to understand the regulations regarding the handling and disposal of this hazardous material.
