Asbestos Products

Asbestos Knowledge Base

HSG264 gives guidance on the categorisation of asbestos products, their location and use and likely asbestos content. In addition, HSG264 states the ease of fibre release and product names where applicable.

We have included a number of photographs to illustrate the various product types to help in their identification. Like many of the photographs in the HSG264 document, they were taken by the Casella Group and we remain indebted to them for their submissions here.

Asbestos items identified in surveys or inspections need to be categorised into their appropriate Asbestos Product groups and this is accommodated in Asbestos ToolKit CS™.
