Garage roof (asbestos ?)

Hi everyone. I wonder if anyone can advise me what to do about our garage roof. It is a sectional concrete garage with a corrugated what looks like asbestos roof, which is now flaking into whitish dust and small particles. The garage was erected in the 1970s, I have seen recently erected garages with similar looking roofs which I would not have thought to be asbestos. Taking its age into consideration would ours be asbestos and if so what can I do to make it safe to use. At present I go into the garage as little as possible and always wear a dust mask if I do.

Thanks in anticipation

Thanks for your reply Customtimber. I have decided to reroof the garage with corrugated bitumen sheets, as suggested to someone on a different thread.
Cheers Tiffie
