Asbestos Awareness

Produced by WorkSafe Saskatchewan

Asbestos refers to six naturally occurring fibrous minerals that have the ability to resist heat, fire, and electricity. Because of these properties, it was widely used in thousands of commercial products and in industrial capacities, including shipbuilding, commercial product manufacturing, power plants, and construction for many years.

Asbestos is made up of microscopic fibers that can easily become airborne and inhaled. Because of their shape, the asbestos particles cling to tissues of the lungs and other areas of the respiratory system. There is no safe level of asbestos exposure.

This video gives you an inside look at the impact that asbestos can have on peoples’ lives.
