Well documented facts on the health risks of asbestos have caused the federal government and California to enact laws and issue regulations designed to limit human exposure to asbestos. These laws and regulations are constantly being changed in order to limit the exposure levels of these materials. Understanding these regulations and managing asbestos containing materials will ensure that your liabilities are safe and protected from regulations and laws concerning asbestos. Even when the law does not force the issue, a proactive asbestos policy is a sound approach to managing liability and health concerns.
