It is not uncommon for commercial factories, buildings and old homes to still have traces of asbestos in them, because between 1930 and 1970, asbestos was one of the most widely used building materials in the world. The use of asbestos for building homes and creating household appliances soon came to a halt, when in 1979 the toxic material was banned after people discovered just how dangerous it can be for health. More than 200,000 people are currently living with asbestosis and if you don’t want to be one of them, it is advisable to get in touch with a company that provides asbestos collection services in your area. Here’s how they can help with these services;
Advance Workplace Safety
Unless you take charge and assume responsibility as a business owner, you could fall into legal troubles. This is why you should take your position seriously and consider the health of your workers by arranging for asbestos collection services. When asbestos is collected from a property and disposed of in the right way, it will not cause a hazard to the people inside the workplace. The better the safety, the lower the chances of you having to spend out for medical care if someone falls ill as a result of asbestos exposure.
Help the Environment
Did you know that mesothelioma accounts for approximately 22 percent of workplace related deaths? This proves just how dangerous asbestos is and when you consider the damage it could do to the environment, it is important that you do your bit by paying for asbestos collection services. The people providing collection services will use the right equipment to ensure compliance with environmental rules and regulations.
Prevent Lung Cancer
Out of the many people who deal with lung cancer each year, approximately 5000 of them are ill as a result of asbestos. Even if asbestos is just lying around the house or work environment, it can cause a major hazard to health. Once a tumour begins to grow it will spread quickly and this means that the lung cancer might be impossible to treat. Hiring an asbestos collection service means that this can be prevented. It is especially important to remove asbestos if it has been disturbed in some way, due to the fact this can increase the level of exposure.
