Occupational asbestos exposure: Deputies and others evacuated

Many Minnesota buildings and homes contain asbestos. It is nearly impossible to know when the substance is present in a particular location unless proper testing is done. However, in places where there is a known asbestos risk, employers and other officials are legally obligated to provide proper training and safety equipment for employees and to take whatever measures are necessary to help keep workers safe. Occupational asbestos exposure in a sheriff's department in another state recently prompted a building evacuation. 

Mesothelioma: Seeking justice when negligence is the cause

Many people in Minnesota and beyond have recently been informed by their doctors that they have an incurable illness. Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer that often occurs in people who have been exposed to asbestos. Symptoms of this disease are not typically immediately apparent.

Asbestos exposure concerns prompt shut down of Montessori school

The 2019 school year has not quite reached its end. However, more than 300 students and faculty members at a Montessori school in another state will be finishing out their year at a different location. Their school building has been shut down due to asbestos exposure concerns as well as other reported health risks. Employees and parents of students in Minnesota schools, in particular, schools where construction projects are ongoing, may want to follow this case.

Occupations with asbestos

Asbestos is a rugged, heat-resistant, naturally-occurring element with thousands of applications. Thus, many different industries used this common material in a vast range of products. Even though asbestos was much more common from 1900 to 1980, it’s still used in many different products today.
