Asbestos Laws and Regulations

Both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), along with other government agencies, have strict regulations regarding asbestos safety standards. The appropriate local agency must be notified before the demolition or renovation of a building with asbestos, and following procedures for safely working in an asbestos-contaminated work area is not only wise, it is the law. Employers must maintain a level of safety for workers, such as:

  • Establishing designated areas
  • Installing engineering devises to control or reduce airborne levels of asbestos
  • Providing each worker protective gear and equipment
  • Mandatory medical monitoring of all workers

Any worker may exercise his/her right to raise a health concern or report an injury or illness. Hart Law has extensive experience reporting unjust work environments and representing injured workers, whether in worker's comp or personal injury.
