Asbestos removal at Pasco High School is set to start this week and certain areas of the school will be closed as a result.
The asbestos will be removed from the roof and it is non-friable asbestos which means that it will not break apart as easily. This makes it safer to move because asbestos becomes dangerous when it is disturbed and the fibers are released into the air.
Once broken apart, the material can be lodged into the lung where it can remain dormant for years before showing any symptoms of cancer. The workers will be wearing safety suits and gear and they will also be wetting the asbestos and taking it to a landfill to be disposed of properly.
