Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer with links to asbestos inhalation, and there are fears of a surge in the number of cases after the Christchurch quake destroyed buildings constructed with the deadly fibres. The most at risk from exposure according to such worries are workers that are involved in the repair and rebuilding efforts in the area.

Fortunately, the review conducted by the Royal Society and the Office of the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Adviser found that the workers’ risks of exposure to asbestos were generally low. This is because everyone working on the rehabilitation projects iswell aware of the presence of asbestos and they are taking all the necessary precautions.

The risks of inhaling asbestos would only significantly increase to the point of causing considerable concern if workers acted recklessly and didn’t follow procedure. An example of the common safety measure is wetting all the surfaces including walls and floor refinishing to prevent the fibres from taking flight.

Knowing what to do is important when doing any form of renovation or repair work on any building. Consulting a professional before getting any work done is the best way to ensure that there aren’t any nasty secrets hiding around in the house.
