Employees Should Know About Asbestos

Asbestos can be particularly deadly material. Unfortunately, offshore oil rig workers are at risk of being harmed by asbestos which still remains in use in many buildings despite federal regulations.

Exposure to asbestos is challenging because in many cases workers are not aware that they have been harmed by the material until it is too late. In many cases, medical conditions such as mesothelioma brought on by asbestos are terminal.
