Construction involves such a
high level of activity in buildings
that it could stir up the asbestos.
Therefore the removal of asbestos
is commonplace in renovation
operations, Beke said. .
Ray Hackney, the biological

of the Health and Safety Office,
said almost any building built
before 1978 could contain some
kind of asbestos.
The buildings are inspected
regularly to ensure the asbestos is
not being disturbed and particles
are not in the air, Hackney said.
