Asbestos Abatement

If only the Romans in the Middle Ages were aware of the fact that the fibrous mineral they applied in lining their armors for war was hazardous to the health, they could have surely sought for methods of asbestos abatement. However, at that period, they were just deeply fascinated that the believed-to-be-dangerous earthen block had a fire- resistant facet making it very ideal when they engaged in the battle array.

As compared to the past, asbestos abatement was badly needed because the regulations set by the authorities in the government concerning the use of the fibrous mineral were not yet modified. However, at this juncture, due to the stringent standards given to industries such as shipping, automation, refinery, construction and mining, among the others, the imposing threats
are lesser albeit, it should not be the reason to be negligent.

In Oklahama State University (OSU), the Environmental Health and
Safety Department is responsible for looking into asbestos
abatement around the school premises. The office definitely has
a big task ahead of them especially that OSU involves several
buildings located in a huge property. Not to mention, the crew
only consists of ten members. Since the group is assigned to a
very lofty assignment, the state's Department of Labor has been
extending assistance.

The asbestos abatement done by the Oklahama State University's
(OSU) Environmental Health and Safety Department is updated in
an annual basis to really ensure that there would be no case of
mesothelioma, a type of cancer brought about by exposure to
filaments of the organic rock. Aside from focusing into the
removal of any material that contains the fibrous mineral, there
are also training courses and staff certifications given.

Since deadly concentrations cannot be viewed by the naked eye,
the first thing that the team does is acquire samples from
suspected items. Afterwhich, they head straight to the
laboratory and perform analysis under the magnifying lens of a
microscope. All the experiments are regarded positive unless not
proven. However, all of the methods are exclusively for the
Oklahoma State University (OSA). The institution just shows that
they are serious in their quest to get rid of
believed-to-be-dangerous earthen block.

You may ask, how about for residential districts? Here is the
deal, the building material generated out of the fibrous mineral
will only be eliminated when overhaul has to be executed. Never
attempt to saw or drill because you are only allowing the
strands from the organic rock to be trapped in the air and
eventually be inhaled.
