“Asbestos” is a commercial name, not a mineralogical definition, given to a variety of six naturally occurring fibrous minerals. These minerals possess high tensile strength, flexibility, resistance to chemical and thermal degradation, and electrical resistance. These minerals have been used for decades in thousands of commercial products, such as insulation and fireproofing materials, automotive brakes and textile products, and cement and wallboard materials.
When handled, asbestos can separate into microscopic-size particles that remain in the air and are easily inhaled. Persons occupationally exposed to asbestos have developed several types of life-threatening diseases, including asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. Although the use of asbestos and asbestos products has dramatically decreased in recent years, they are still found in many residential and commercial settings and continue to pose a health risk to workers and others.
People may be exposed to asbestos by breathing tiny asbestos fibers in the air. The asbestos gets into the air from from natural deposits of asbestos in the earth or from past or current commercial products that contain the minerals. Asbestos fibers usually get into the air when something disturbs them in soil, rock, or older products, such as
Weathering or erosion of natural deposits of asbestos at the ground surface or old asbestos-containing products
Crushing rock with natural deposits of asbestos
Handling, cutting, or crushing old asbestos-containing products, for example, during building renovation or demolition projects
Disturbing soil contaminated by natural surface deposits or old asbestos-containing products during recreational or other outdoor activities.
Handling or disturbing consumer products contaminated with asbestos (such as vermiculite or talc)
Gardening in soil contaminated by asbestos from natural deposits or commercial products
