Asbestos Forms & Resources

Asbestos is the name of a group of naturally occurring fibrous minerals that are heat-resistant, strong, and extremely durable. Asbestos has historically been used in over 4,000 building products because of these properties.

Inhaling asbestos fibers can cause cancer and related diseases. For this reason, it is a closely regulated air pollutant. Removal of asbestos is regulated by LRAPA in Lane County, Oregon, under LRAPA’s Title 43 – Asbestos Requirements rules.
