The first step to minimising the risks posed with working with or around asbestos is being asbestos aware. This means knowing what materials could potentially contain asbestos, what it is that makes asbestos hazardous to human health, and ways that you can work safely with or around asbestos-containing materials without causing harm to yourself or those around you.
