Caption: Asbestos hazard warning label. Asbestos comprises silicate minerals. It is used as insulation in the building industry. If the asbestos degrades and is exposed, asbestos fibres will be released into the air. These are small and can be inhaled deep into the lungs. As the body is unable to degrade them, lung damage due to asbestos (asbestosis) and lung cancers such as mesotheliomas, result. Asbestos in buildings and other structures has to be removed with care using special methods.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
