The Danger of Asbestos

Posted on
As a Civil Engineer by profession I know how dangerous it is for the construction workers to be exposed to asbestos. We have a building construction project in the 90’s which construction was suspended for a year because of legal battle regarding material specification . The City Engineer already prohibited the use of Asbestos in any project but we wondered how the bill of materials and building permit was approved by their staff.Exposure to Asbestos is the cause of malignant mesothelioma – a rare form of cancer that develops from the protective lining that covers many of the body’s internal organs, the mesothelium. In America more and more people seek legal help from Mesothelioma lawyer after they were diagnosed with asbestos-related disease. Good for them.. but here in our country there are still materials with asbestos components sold in various suppliers. I guess it’s high time for the present administration to address this problem. What do you think my fellow Filipinos?
