Depending on how and where asbestos was applied, it might not pose any risk to most users of the building. If the fibers cannot become dislodged, they cannot be inhaled, and thus the asbestos poses no risk. However, when asbestos becomes damaged, particularly if a contractor drills into it, allow asbestos fibers to drop off into the air. Asbestos poses hazards to maintenance personnel who have then can inhail the fibres. Even if the workers are protected, such maintenance operation may release fibers into the air, which may be inhaled by others.The use of all forms of asbestos has been banned in South Africa since 28 March 2008. This means that the import, manufacture, supply, sale and use or reuse of asbestos and asbestos-containing products is no longer permitted. The ban doesn't apply to asbestos installed prior to this date (eg in residential or commercial buildings).
Due to its strength, durability and resistance to fire and water, asbestos was used in a wide range of building products and materials up until the mid-1980s. Products that may contain asbestos include vinyl floor tiles, cement roof sheeting and wall lining, lagging and jointing material and fire blankets.
