Asbestos fibers are present in the environment in Australia so most people are exposed to very low levels of fibers. However, a key factor in the risk of developing an asbestos-related disease is the total number of fibers breathed in. Working on or near damaged asbestos-containing materials or breathing in high levels of asbestos fibers, which may be many hundreds of times that of environmental levels can increase your chances of getting an asbestos-related disease.
Asbestos related diseases won't affect immediately but later on in life, so there is a need for you to protect yourself now to prevent you contracting an asbestos-related disease in the future. It is also important to remember that people who smoke and are also exposed to asbestos fibers are at a much greater risk of developing lung cancer.
