How to Handle An Old Problem That Won’t Go Away

The federal government passed an asbestos ban in 1989, but that does not mean that the harmful product disappeared. Asbestos is still a serious threat to the health of workers and building occupants—and if you neglect asbestos regulations, you could face serious consequences. If you are in construction, education, housing or another related industry, you need to stay current on asbestos rules and how to properly protect your employees and residents.

Join environmental consultant Dr. Ryan Kuhn in this live webinar as he offers a fresh introduction to this old problem—as well as a current take on how to avoid common health & safety violations. Kuhn will explain what asbestos is and why it is still a concern, and he’ll run down asbestos regulations and how you could be affected. You’ll learn the types of civil and criminal prosecutions that can result from asbestos missteps, as well as what is considered a residential versus commercial property and why that matters when it comes to regulatory compliance.

After attending this audio event, you will know exactly which asbestos-related issues could land you in hot water—that is, you’ll understand the specific products included in the asbestos ban and which ones you are likely to encounter. You’ll also be equipped to address special situations concerning asbestos exposure. Decades after efforts got underway for a ban, asbestos is still a problem, and one you’re on the frontlines of addressing. So get suited up!
