Asbestos Awareness Courses
#1
So I have just had the life frightened out of me on this course and was just curious as to how up to speed people were with dealing with asbestos in archaeological contexts. I guess this mainly applies to post-med/industrial sites but is asbestos awareness a standard across archaeological companies? Building Surveys seem pretty obvious - some sort of refurb/demolition survey should have been done beforehand which identifies obvious bits. But archaeologically, things get a little muddy (in more ways than one). In soils it can be hard to identify if it has already degraded, particularly the brown and blue stuff and past experience has shown that trial pits won't neccessarily pick it up if its concentrated in particular areas.

Just thinking of the all the new people coming into the commercial world thick and fast who may even be of a generation where it was no longer used in buildings

Or am I just being paranoid, perhaps the risk is the same as tetanus or Weils disease?

Thanks in advance Smile
