Asbestos Safety Inspections

Like any dangerous fiber, asbestos is subject to safety inspections. These inspections are carried out by various governmental agencies. They are meant to test that the asbestos present in the air does not get above a certain level and that the employees of an employer are outfitted with all of the necessary safety items.

Acceptable Levels

Like any item, there are acceptable and unacceptable levels of asbestos. The safety inspections carried out by organizations such as OSHA or the EPA are meant to ensure that the levels in a particular room or building to not breach a certain level. The thought is that humans are likely to be exposed to asbestos, since it is a naturally occurring fiber, at some point in their lives as a result of living.

The acceptable levels are designed to prevent an individual from being exposed to excessive amounts of asbestos. A single fiber is not likely to do much damage to an individual’s lungs and this is why there are such things as acceptable and unacceptable levels of exposure.

Safety Gear

If a factory or entity knows that its employees are likely to be exposed to asbestos in the course of work, it is expected that they will give their employees the necessary items to prevent unhealthy exposure to the fiber. These precautions could include special work clothes to prevent the conveyance of asbestos to the home. The precautions could also include special masks designed to keep asbestos fibers out while allowing clean oxygen in.
