    — Tipped by Montana environmentalists and lawyers, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer makes the Libby asbestos disaster a national story, forcing the EPA top dispatch a cleanup team. — W.R. Asbestosis is a chronic lung disease caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers, characterized by diffuse interstitial parenchymal fibrosis (Figure 3).Asbestosis is frequently associated with pleural fibrosis or pleural calcification. Radiographic changes are usually small irregular opacities occurring mainly in the lower and middle lung fields.

    HOMEOWNER’S AND RENTER’S GUIDE TO ASBESTOS CLEANUP AFTER DISASTERS Cleanup and rehabilitation activities can pose health hazards due to the possible presence of asbestos. Asbestos can be present in many types of building materials, such as: wrapping around pipes, drywall taping, popcorn ceiling materials, attic insulation and much more. Asbestos also causes cancer of the lung and other diseases such as mesothelioma of the pleura which is a fatal malignant tumor of the membrane lining the cavity of the lung or stomach. Epidemiologic evidence has increasingly shown that all asbestos fiber types, including the most commonly used form of asbestos, chrysotile, causes mesothelioma.

    The open book examination does not certify a contractor to engage in asbestos-related work. The purpose of the guide and the examination is to make contractors aware of the risks of dealing with asbestos and to provide the knowledge base necessary to respond appropriately to construction situations where asbestos is or may be present. Beginning in the s, epidemiological studies focusing on asbestos-exposed workers revealed a significant risk of cancer mortality.[1–3] In , the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded that asbestos is a human carcinogen, and today the IARC reiterates that there is no safe level of exposure to asbestos and that all.
