Keeping Workers Informed About Asbestos on the Job

Employers in the United States are required by law to inform workers about the presence of asbestos and train them to properly handle asbestos-containing materials. Regardless, licensed and unlicensed individuals are exposed to the substance on the job, every day.

OSHA Rules and Regulations

That is simply not the case. Today, many workers are exposed to asbestos on the job when employers violate the Occupational Health and Safety Administration's rules and regulations regarding the handling of asbestos-containing materials.
