Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in many products and building materials for years. It was valued for its durability and resistance to heat and chemicals, and is still commonly found in

  • Floor/ceiling tiles
  • Insulation
  • Wall panels
  • Ductwork connectors
  • Cement
  • Mastics
  • Pipes
  • Drywall joint compound

Although asbestos is still in use, products containing asbestos must now meet federal regulations. Older buildings can contain asbestos building materials that pose a serious health risk to occupants as the building products degrade and asbestos fibers possibly become airborne.

Exposure to Asbestos and Cancer

Asbestos is silent and deadly. You cannot detect the particles in the air. These particles get into your lungs when you breathe and when you swallow. Inhaling asbestos fibers into the lungs have been found to cause

  • Asbestosis
  • Lung cancer
  • Pleural Mesothelioma
  • Other cancers of the stomach or colon

Exposure to asbestos does not cause immediate illness. It can take anywhere from 10 to 50 years after regular breathing of asbestos particles for cancer to set in. The more asbestos you inhale or ingest, the more likely you are to get sick. The period between asbestos exposure and onset of cancer is called the latency period.

Confined spaces not only are dangerous but also a hazard to laborers with limited air exchanges and potential exposure to unhealthy gases. Safety harnesses and breathing apparatuses are worn at all times. All technicians and laborers must be certified and a lifeguard is typically nearby keeping a watch on those in the high danger zone.
