What is asbestos and why does it matter?

Asbestos is a group of naturally occurring minerals composed of extremely thin fibers. Because it’s so thin, asbestos is extremely durable to heat and abrasion, but it’s strength is also its drawback. The microscopic asbestos fibers can remain airborne for days, creating a hazard for any individual who is exposed to them. Specifically, asbestos exposure increases risks of mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases, making it a public health risk. 

Until the 1970s, asbestos was widely used in the construction, shipbuilding, and automotive industries. There are many different types of asbestos, including chrysotile asbestos and amphibole asbestos, which are still present in many buildings that were built before 1975. Each of these  different types of asbestos pose occupational health and safety hazards depending on their usage and interaction. In order to keep our businesses, employees, and family members safe, we must decrease the presence of asbestos in the United States. This is where MEC comes in!
