History of Asbestos | Asbestos Awareness Training | iHASCO
What is the history of asbestos and when was asbestos created?
Asbestos has been used by humankind for over 4 thousand years. The earliest written record of asbestos the word asbestos meaning ‘inextinguishable’ dates back to 300BC in Ancient Greece. And the last type of asbestos was banned in the UK in 1999.
Asbestos has been utilised for various different reasons across these 4 thousand years. Our stunning sneak preview of our Asbestos Awareness Training tells more about the evolution of asbestos and how it is still affecting people today…
This short video is a snippet of our Asbestos Awareness Training. To find out more about the dangers of asbestos, what the law states surrounding asbestos and what you can do to control the risk of the possible exposure to asbestos, visit our Asbestos Awareness Training Course page https://www.ihasco.co.uk/courses/detail/asbestosawareness. We also offer international Asbestos Awareness Training for those not living in the UK.
Once thought of as a “miracle mineral” for its ability to withstand water, heat, fire, electricity and even chemical corrosion, asbestos has been used by humankind for over 4 thousand years.
The earliest evidence of asbestos has been found in pots and cooking utensils that date back to Stone Age Finland. The Ancient Egyptians used to cremate their dead wrapped in bundles of woven asbestos, so the body would burn to ashes without intermixing with the cloth.
The earliest written record of asbestos the word asbestos meaning ‘inextinguishable’ dates back to 300BC where Ancient Greek Philosophers wrote that slaves who worked with the material often ended up with lung complications. But they were so in awe of it’s seemingly magical properties, they continued to use it.
Coming further forward, the Romans used asbestos for building materials. And it’s rumoured that they would throw asbestos cloths into the fire to clean, because when they pulled them out, they were unharmed and whiter than when they went in. And so the illusion continued.
In medieval times, asbestos was woven into clothing that was used as insulation in suits of armour, and tablecloths that were used by the wealthy.
And by the time we reached the end of the 19th Century, the Industrial Revolution had made the most of it. Asbestos was used by railway engineers to line refrigeration units, box cars and cabooses; and it was used by shipbuilders to insulate steam pipes, hot water pipes, boilers and incinerators. During the war, shipbuilding was at its peak, so millions of workers were exposed to asbestos.
At the turn of the 20th century, asbestos was still widely used but the illusion started to fade. Researchers started looking into the amount of deaths and lung problems that were suffered by people in asbestos mining towns, especially as many people were dying at young ages.
Then in 1924, the first diagnosis of asbestosrelated disease was made. The woman died at age 33 after working with asbestos for 20 years.
The first asbestosrelated laws were passed in 1931, which intended to increase ventilation for workers and make asbestosrelated diseases inexcusable. But asbestos companies continued to use it in manufacturing and construction, with little care for their workers. They did their best to cover up the health risks and this worked well enough for a while. As time went on, the risks to health were becoming clearer and certain types of asbestos were even banned.
Yet, the 1970s and 80s still saw a few large asbestos companies moving the manufacture of their product to lowerincome countries, so they could continue operating without so much scrutiny.
Finally, the last type of asbestos was banned in the UK in 1999. And here we are, present day. Asbestos proved itself too good to be true. And even though this problem is a historical one, it’s also a current one, because people who were exposed decades ago are still at risk of asbestosrelated disease.
The truth is, that occupational exposure to asbestos is responsible for around 107 thousand global deaths a year; that’s 293 people dying every day due to exposure.
