Report on Making Asbestos Less of A Danger

A new report by the Asbestos Safety Eradication Agency looked into practices that could help make asbestos less dangerous where it is not immediately possible to remove, examining current ways to contain and stabilise asbestos, especially in roofing.

The agency investigated current products and practices used to contain and stabilise asbestos to make it safer where it is, or make it safer to remove.

The agency also found that the industry supported government incentives towards dealing with and managing asbestos.
