The Agency has determined that exposure to asbestos in school buildings poses a significant hazard to public health. Expousre to asbestos fibers can lead to serious and irreversible diseases. Friable asbestos-containing materials release ashestos fibers into the ambient environment. A sizeable proportion of schools contain asbestos-containing materials. In certain conditions these materials release fibers in concentrations which pose increased risks of developing the disease.
