Information has been released confirming 346 Kent schools contain asbestos; the substance can be found in any building built before the year 2000 including schools, houses, offices, factories and hospitals across the UK.
If managed properly and left undisturbed in a safe condition, asbestos containing materials do not necessarily pose a risk to health. It is only when the substance is disturbed or damaged causing fibres to be released that it becomes a serious health risk.
