Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Pasco High School begins to work on asbestos abatement

Beginning this week, Pasco High School will close certain areas in order for workers to remove asbestos from them.

As of right now, the school’s roof contains asbestos particles, which is now a known carcinogen. It was commonly used in building materials and can become very dangerous if is disturbed because it it can then lodge into the lungs.

According to the story in The News Tribune online, this type of asbestos is considered non-friable and it is more difficult to break apart, meaning that it is less dangerous. The workers will be wearing protective gear and the asbestos will be wet before it is removed.
