What should workers know about asbestos hazards?

According to doctors and scientists, there are no "safe" levels of asbestos exposure. The substance is highly damaging to human lung tissue, and it can lead to various types of aggressive, fatal cancers and lung diseases. The way that all employers and workers should respond to an asbestos threat is to avoid it, contain it, safely dispose of it and ensure that nothing like it ever happens again. The problem is, many workers in Pennsylvania continue to face the dangers of asbestos exposure daily on the job.
