Abstract
Since the 1970s, in Korea, a number of buildings were found to be built with materials containing a lot of asbestos, but few stuides have been made on how much arsenic acid a building has and how much asbestos is contained in building materials as the materials become degraded. The study aims to examine current situations of the asbestos slate building in rural areas of Korea and management strategies of the Korean government in an effort to prevent the exposure to harmful substances of residents in rural areas and provide basic data for the management of the asbestos slate buildings.
