Asbestos Exposure at Work

Workplaces have been one of the most significant sources of asbestos-related diseases over the decades. This is partially because so many factories, mills, and mines have worked with asbestos since its positive qualities were discovered in ancient times. It is also because the type of exposure workers face is so dangerous.

Instead of using products or working in buildings where intact asbestos is contained, workers have often been made to directly interact with it. Tragically, many of these workers were not even given proper safety equipment until recent years. Some of the work environments where asbestos exposure has been a consistent problem include:

If you or someone you love has ever worked in or around these industries, you may have been exposed to harmful asbestos dust without your knowledge. Contact an asbestos lawyer at Williams Hart for more information on asbestos exposure and its risks.

Asbestos and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

OSHA is the government agency in charge of enforcing workplace safety regulations. Despite their efforts to product employees of all kinds, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that about 1.3 million workers are exposed to significant amounts of asbestos on the job. Anyone who works with or near asbestos should be aware of the legal regulations meant to protect them.

Asbestos in the workplace is not completely banned, as the material is still used in small amounts to make many different products. However, OSHA does require every employer to provide useful safety equipment to all employees who work with any kind of dangerous substance. Additionally, several states have adopted asbestos regulations of their own, some of which are stricter than federal law.
