A heating installation company has been fined 8,000 Euros after three of their employees were exposed to asbestos while performing renovations on a church. The workers spent five days on the renovations at St. Teresa's Roman Catholic church before they learned about the asbestos at all. However, the three men are continuing to work for the company.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of asbestos related conditions, it could take many years before these men know whether or not the exposure has affected them. If it has, they will be at risk for asbestosis and mesothelioma, among other conditions.
Asbestos exposure can be very dangerous. If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos, contact the mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-220-9341.
