How do I know if I am at risk for mesothelioma or other asbestos-related medical conditions?
Symptoms may not show up for years. For our clients, this has ranged from about 10 to 50 years. See our partial list or ask us about Ohio work sites where asbestos was used.
Are there guidelines protecting workers from asbestos?
Yes. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in Section 5(a)(1) of the OSH Act requires employers to provide a workplace environment "free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm."
