Asbestos is a mineral fiber used for insulation and fire prevention. Asbestos can be found in a variety of manufactured products, including insulation, roofing shingles, ceiling and floor tiles, and automobile brake, clutch and transmission parts. When asbestos-containing materials are disturbed by construction, repair or demolition, microscopic asbestos fibers become airborne and can enter the lungs, causing serious health problems and death. Most exposure to asbestos comes from in paper and pulp mills. People at risk for asbestos exposure include those who work in foundries, mining, construction, HVAC and automobile repair.
