Posted March 15, 2018 07:30:00 While asbestos abating has become a popular hobby in the last few years, the use of this toxic chemical is still largely unregulated.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates asbestos abats under the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHRA).
However, the regulations are not always enforced by the EPA.
When it comes to asbestos abattoirs, the EPA has had a difficult time enforcing regulations, said David DeLuca, an EPA spokesperson.
EPA inspectors often are tasked with investigating violations of the law, but the agency is not always equipped to take action against those who violate the law.
While there are more than 70,000 asbestos abators in the United States, only about 200 of them have been inspected by the agency, according to DeLucas.
This means the agency’s inspectors often don’t know about the many violations that occur and the many times inspectors fail to take enforcement action, DeLucA said.
The problem is especially acute in the West Coast, where abattages are most common.
This is the region that houses the largest number of asbestos abaters.
The EPA is also one of the largest employers of asbestos workers in the country.
Asbestos abatements are common in the construction industry.
Workers in the industry tend to be older than those employed in the retail, office, and construction industries.
The industry is also particularly vulnerable to asbestos contamination, as abatages are common during construction and maintenance.
While asbestos is not a hazardous chemical, the chemicals can cause serious health effects, including skin and lung diseases.
As a result, abatings are regulated as hazardous waste, De Luca said.
As the EPA tries to enforce OSHA regulations, the agency has been working with abatage contractors to educate them about the potential risks of asbestos.
This has been difficult, because the industry has been largely unregulated, DeLUCA said.
When workers visit the abatagems, they often are unaware that asbestos abateries are illegal.
In fact, the workers sometimes believe the abattagers are telling them the abators do not have asbestos abates, he said.
But the workers have no way of knowing that.
“We’ve been talking to abatagers all over the country, and they all say, ‘You know, I thought that was just a joke, I was kidding,'” DeLuc, the spokesperson, said.
“But the fact is, that’s actually what’s happening.”
What are the symptoms of asbestos?
Asbestos exposure can cause a wide range of symptoms, from mild symptoms to more serious illnesses.
The most common symptoms of inhalation are chest tightness, coughing, and trouble breathing.
As an adult, the most common symptom is the classic red blotch rash on the face, which lasts from a few days to a week.
The rash can appear as a red or black spot on the skin and sometimes extends to the entire body.
These symptoms typically appear on the back, chest, and back of the head, and sometimes even on the eyelids.
Common symptoms of the skin rash include: red, watery, or bloody blotches on the cheeks, chin, neck, face, or neck area, or a blotchy or discolored or crusty appearance on the chest or back of your head
