Asbestos Products & Exposure

Research shows that asbestos exposure is closely linked to one’s previous work environment. This is due to employees working with asbestos and/or asbestos products. Asbestos was mainly used in industrial settings for the manufacture of other products. For example aluminum plants, vehicle assembly plants.

Today, Federal laws require that manufactured products contain less than one percent (1%) of asbestos in them. Now there are a number of popular asbestos alternatives available which are both environment and human friendly, in that they pose limited or no health concerns to those who use them.
