Bowburn woman exposed to asbestos receives compensation

A Bowburn woman who is suffered from health problems due to asbestos exposure in her childhood community recently received a payout from the company responsible for the asbestos exposure, according to an article published on Friday, October 18.

According to reports, the woman whose name was withheld, was exposed to asbestos from a local factory near her childhood home between the years 1967 and 1983. The woman is now suffering from terminal cancer after making snow balls that were contaminated with asbestos.

A court settled her case, and she was able to receive compensation from Cape Intermediate Holdings Plc.

The woman, who is currently living in London as a fashion designer, said that she was angry to learn that she and her other friends had been exposed to asbestos while innocently playing in their village.

Asbestos still present in building at University of Florida

Workers at the University of Florida removed thousands of square feet of coating contaminated with asbestos over the summer, a project that had to be completed prior to the reconstruction of the Colonnade.

According to reports, at least 9,050 square feet of asbestos coating was discovered by inspectors that needed to be removed before workers started the demolition and rehabilitation on the premises. UF Vice President Curtis Reynolds said they made a conscious effort to remove the asbestos in their premises to prevent students, faculty, and staff from being exposed to the substance.

Asbestos can be found in many old buildings due to its cost-effectiveness and durability.

Abestos found in Luzerne County Community College classroom

Classes and laboratories were rescheduled after a test found trace amounts of asbestos – a construction material that is a proven carcinogen – in Building 2 of Luzerne County Community College in northern Pennsylvania.

The building is scheduled to be cleaned as a precaution measure, and according to a spokeswoman, courses should progress unhindered.

Sadly, not all cases of asbestos are caught and corrected so early. Many innocent people are harmed by exposure yearly.
