Before the negative health effects of asbestos were fully understood, this hazardous
substance was used in thousands of products and building materials. And asbestos
containing materials can be found in many buildings even today.
Employees such as custodial, engineering and maintenance staff need to understand
the health risks associated with asbestos, be able to recognize asbestos hazards in
their workplace and know what to do to protect themselves and others from exposure
