10 steps construction workers can take to minimize asbestos risks

Asbestos is a natural mineral fiber that is known for its strength, heat resistance and insulative properties. These qualities make asbestos a useful component of numerous building materials, including insulation, ceiling tiles, flooring felt and others. However, when someone inhales or ingests asbestos fibers, they can cause problems in the body. Any amount of asbestos exposure could cause illnesses like asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.

City engineer accuses San Diego of ignoring asbestos warnings

A civil engineer in San Diego is one of two people who filed a whistleblower complaint against the city.

What is the difference between asbestosis and mesothelioma?

If you know you have past asbestos exposure, you may be concerned about your risk of developing an asbestos-related disease.
