Adams Elementary School in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma had arecent asbestos scare when a piece of piping isulation fell from a cieling. This revealed some asbestos and the school had to be evacuated. The school has been reopened after an asbestos handling crew was sent in to make the necessary repairs and remove any asbestos from the air. This was done with specialized vaccuums designed specifically for this job.
The State of Oklahoma feels that the Oklahoma School District is not taking the issue of asbestos safety seriously enough. This is highly unfortunate as it means that the school district may be placing young children at risk for asbestos related conditions. If there is anything upset at the school and nobody finds out about it in time, it could lead to asbestos exposure for hundreds of children.
Asbestos exposure can lead to a variety of medical conditions, including asbestos poisoning, asbestosis and mesothelioma. If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos, contact the asbestos exposure lawyers of Williams Kherkher at 800-220-9341.
