Asbestos awareness is a specialized skill that involves understanding the dangers that asbestos poses to human health and the necessary precautions that must be taken to prevent exposure. It involves knowledge of the types of asbestos, the products that may contain asbestos, and the health effects of exposure. Asbestos awareness is necessary for individuals who work in buildings or construction, particularly those involved in maintenance, renovation, or demolition, as these activities may disturb asbestos-containing materials and release harmful fibers into the air.
