Asbestos has widely been used in construction. Just a small number of asbestos fibres released into the air can eventually lead to cancer; therefore, the building material was banned in 1990. However, in older buildings that need to be renovated or demolished, there is still a risk of exposure to asbestos dust, which is not visible to the naked eye. The poster raises awareness of asbestos, the invisible fatal hazard.
