Asbestos is all around us. As an economical building material it has been extensively used since the 60’s in public buildings, infrastructure and our very own homes. Because of the severe health risks after exposure (lung diseases, cancers,...) the Flemish Government has announced their ambitious plan “Asbestveilig Vlaanderen by 2040”. Asbestplatform will support this goal by creating an online platform where homeowners, business owners, real estate agents and architects can look for certified inventorisation experts, asbestos removal companies and renovations companies to collaborate with.
Furthermore Asbestplatform will assist asbestos inventorisation experts with additional tools and support to make sure we can enjoy the safety of our environment.
