Asbestos Awareness

For the better part of a century, asbestos was one of the most commonly used building material.  Because of the hazards associated with this material, it was banned from new applications in 1980. However, asbestos is still found in many of the buildings that we live and work in daily.  Would you recognize what it looks like, and know what regulations apply?
