The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has implemented safety standards to reduce the risk of asbestos exposure to workers. Companies that fail to follow these standards may be liable for significant damages if the health of workers is affected.

OSHA 标准为可能含有石棉的环境中的工人提供以下保护:

  • 个人石棉暴露监测设备,用于评估潜在暴露风险
  • 建立监管区域来控制石棉暴露区域的工作实践
  • 实施工程控制以减少空气中石棉的含量
  • 对接触石棉的工人进行医疗监测

OSHA 还为公司制定了自我检查程序,以防止职业接触石棉。如果您可能在工作场所接触过石棉,请告诉您的医生,以便他或她对石棉相关疾病的症状保持警惕,例如石棉肺、肺癌和间皮瘤。接触石棉后通常需要几十年的时间才会出现疾病。
