Kansas Asbestos Regulations
Imagine getting a phone call at work. Your child’s elementary school had to evacuate the entire building because of the discovery of an insidious material fiber. Asbestos. Maybe you’ve heard of it. It is a mineral fiber found in the construction materials of many older buildings such as schools, churches, and homes, especially those built before the early 1980s. Think the above scenario can’t happen? It is exactly what happened at Yates Center Elementary and Middle School in Kansas in 2016 when ceiling materials began to randomly fall onto the floor. While state laws tracking asbestos are typically relegated to construction projects, not schools or homes, there are things you can do to help protect yourself and your loved ones from the dangers of asbestos exposure.
