|Many older buildings, typically prior to 1980, have some type of building material that contains asbestos. Most asbestos-containing materials are safe as long as they are not disturbed and remain in good condition. However, renovationor demoliton activities in older buildings will cause an asbestos-containing material to become damaged and release airborne asbestos fibers which could be toxic to building occupatns and workers. To prevent asbestos exposure, there are environmental regulations that require the building, or a portion of the building, to be inspected for asbestos in order to identify all asbestos containing materials. These asbestos materials can then either be removed or managed in place.
