If you or a member of your family has been exposed to asbestos, you may be entitled to compensation. The Health and Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, has set standards for asbestos exposure qualifies as a public health risk. These standards are based on the number of asbestos fibres released into the air over time. Exposure to more than five micrograms per cubic meter of air means your home is at risk of developing cancer.
Asbestosis and other serious health problems will occur if you work in an office where asbestos materials are used. It can happen if you were not told about the asbestos testing and did not inform your employer that you had been exposed. In this case, you can file a personal injury claim against your employer. You can also book asbestos testing with a private agency to determine your exposure levels.
Is there asbestosis in the house? The answer to this question depends on whether the asbestos testing Adelaide was performed before or after you became exposed. If it was done before your become ill, your chances of contracting asbestosis are relatively low. The health effects that you can experience are as follows: shortness of breath, coughing, chest pains, shortness of breath, weight loss, persistent lung cancer, damage to the lung, and other lung diseases.
Are my building materials and insulation contaminated with asbestosis? First, you should make sure that the building materials that contain asbestos are cleaned up and disposed of properly. A good rule of thumb is to ask whether your building materials, such as asbestos roofing, insulation, flooring, doors, windows, plumbing, electrical systems, ceiling tiles, cabinets, etc., have been manufactured according to the Americans Disabilities Act (ADA). This law requires certain parts of these building materials to be as well lighted so that those who have asbestosis don’t have to see the condition before attempting to do something about it. If this part isn’t included in your insulation and building materials manufacturing, and it is not lighted, you should consider calling a qualified professional.
Is my asbestosis or mesothelioma related to the work I’m doing? When it comes to asbestos testing, the answer can only be ‘yes’. That’s because the very reason you got asbestosis-or mesothelioma-in in the first place was because of the asbestos particles that were stuck to your lungs. In addition to the fact that the fibres from asbestos are small enough not to be seen by the naked eye, they are also soft. Because they are so small, they quickly get trapped in various structures that contain them. Asbestos particles can become airborne, especially at high temperatures, and that’s when they are breathed in by people doing things like painting, working in construction, or demolition of buildings.
What kind of testing will I need for this? Most companies have their labs where they conduct all of the testings needed for your specific situation. For many private companies, however, the cost of such testing can become a significant barrier to having the job completed.
How often should I test for this? Because the effects of asbestos exposure vary from one person to the next and between industries, you should typically have your testing done every year. However, if your company does not frequently test with an independent laboratory, you may want to consider outsourcing this task. Many experienced and highly trained environmental consultants can perform the testing for you at a significantly lower cost than you would ever expect.
