Asbestos is known for its high tensile strength non-combustibility and high heat and electrical resistance these minerals have been used for decades in thousands of commercial products. Asbestos has been used in the manufacture of thermal, fireproofing, and acoustical insulation. Other building materials which are asbestos-containing include floor tiles, mastic, roofing felts, ceiling tiles, asbestos cement sheets, and fire-resistant drywall.
Asbestos is a known carcinogen. By law, an abundant amount of training is required to manage asbestos-related projects.

In addition, only accredited persons may design response actions and only certain contractors may perform the appropriate response action.
