Asbestos is a material composed of micro fibers that are present in nature in different forms. In Spain, they used white (chrysotile) asbestos in 90% of cases. The most common usage of white asbestos was in fiber cement corrugated sheets (Uralita), panels, wall partitions and also in gutters, storage tanks and water pipes.

An extended exposure to asbestos can cause respiratory problems when the fibers of this mineral are inhaled, and in some cases where the exposure has gone on for a long period of time, it may cause lung cancer, harmful mesothelioma and asbestosys.

For this reason, the authorized companies for asbestos removal, such as Bastida, have individual protection gear (EPIs), to be used by qualified professionals.

Also, the Real decreto 396/2006, establishes guidelines in maintenance of facilities with asbestos, the removal of materials with this mineral, the establishment of a Work Plan, ongoing education requirements, the health of the workers, and the evaluation of every risk that every certified company must follow. The company that carries out an asbestos project must also be inscribed in the RERA, in the regional labor institution and Social Security, or in the pertaining Regional institutions.
