A health hazard is the chemical that causes acute toxicity, skin corrosion or irritation, serious eye damage or eye irritation, respiratory or skin sensitization, germ cell mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, specific target organ toxicity or aspiration hazard. Before you learn what to do to protect yourself from asbestos exposure you need to know some of the basic concept such as asbestos content, asbestos work classes and permissible exposure limits (PELS). In general, asbestos materials can be safe to work around as long as the materials are in good condition and are not disturb. However if asbestos materials are disturb to become damage they can be serious health hazard. Tiny fibers of asbestos can be released from the material and breath into the lungs and trapped there this can lead to asbestosis, mesothelioma, lung cancer and other medical problems.
