Asbestos was widely used throughout the building and construction industry for many years and remains present in older buildings. Asbestos was used for heat insulation, soundproofing and as a fire-proofing material when buildings were under construction as well as for decorative use, e.g. in artex, floor tiles and ceilings.
Men who worked in the initial construction of buildings were exposed as were tradesmen who worked on maintenance and renovation of older properties.
