Asbestos poses health risks when fibres are released in the air and breathed. These fibres can lodge in the lungs which may eventually cause scarring and ultimately severely impaired lung function or cancers of the lungs or lung cavity.
The most frequent occupational disease fatalities accepted by the Workers’ Compensation Board in recent years concern exposure to asbestos fibres.
