Hidden dangers!

Just a friendly heads-up for all you fellow construction workers. Before you renovate your home or office building, have it inspected. Sprayed on asbestos products was commonly used to fireproof or insulate. These products are extremely dangerous. Since my father died of lung cancer after working in the mines his whole life, I am on a crusade to educate everyone of the risks associated with asbestos. Please feel free to look over the information I have gathered on asbestos so far at http://bangledesigns.ca/asbestos.html Resent medical information indicates that extreme concentration of fibrous asbestos is much more dangerous then expected. If you have information, you would like to share please feel free to contact me. While some products are considered relatively safe while intact, exposure can occur if the asbestos-type products are damaged and micro fibers are released into the air. Also, the latency period for asbestos cancers is 20 to 40 years. Get the facts and work safe.

The rule to follow is "Don't work in an asbestos mine."
There are no cases of asbestos-related diseases from commercial products containing asbestos. This includes those who worked insulation, wall and floor coverings, and even with brake shoes and pads where there's a lot of asbestos "dust."
