Asbestos Exposure: Best Practices to Avoid Hazards

osha regulation | Gaylord & Nantais

Know OSHA Regulations

Every business has different OSHA regulations that pertain to the control and removal of asbestos. It is important to know which regulations are required for the type of business you would be dealing with. It will also give you an idea of how much asbestos will be present at that particular workplace.

Know Where Asbestos Is

Watch for placards and signs that identify areas where asbestos is located. If you are entering an area that is clearly marked for asbestos, seeing the signage will give you ample of time to get the protective gear you need before proceeding.

Wear an Approved Respirator

If you are going to remove asbestos or even entering an area where it is present, you must wear a respirator that is approved for conditions where asbestos is present. Respirators prevent asbestos dust from entering your lungs and causing severe upper respiratory problems.

Use The Right Equipment

When removing asbestos, it is extremely important to use the proper equipment. Any time asbestos is disturbed, dust is created and dispersed into the air. Using a HEPA vacuum and a properly equipped ventilation system will help remove the dust from the air as well as from where it rests.

If you work in areas where asbestos is present, it is important to protect yourself from being exposed. Using the proper equipment will help reduce your risk of exposure, but you must also learn as much as you can about asbestos and how it is dispersed if you want to handle it safely.
