Avoid working with asbestos causing asbestosis - Mesothelioma
Insure using safe materials.
The topic may be already well known to you but still this page is here to rise more awareness about hazardous asbestos.
(If any one knows of an asbest item laying somewhere, and if you can insure safely taking a close up photo shot of it please email me that photograph-s in large detailed file format it would be gr8 to have it on this page.)
Asbestos court case
The court room was silent as the judge continued to speak shortly after the language translator repeated his words to our UK lawyer (btw in the U.K. lawyers are called solicitors) who quietly writes a big number on a piece of clean note paper showing it to his opposition counterpart. All of a sudden his client representative nodded his head as if to say Yes after which their lawyer stud up interrupting the speech just to say my client would like to proceed and agrees with by the family demanded compensation. The big number doesn't even mean a fraction to the company size now days but with no publicity on our part our story was finalized by legal case. I doubt their contract signing documents continue to mention any word meanings having anything to do about operation with material containing hazardous asbestos not to mention asbestosis or mesothelioma cancer. I was 13 years old when my father changed his work environment for hospital bed in his 47th. Asbestos was first found causing cancer in 1970s and was replaced from industrial production worldwide by end of 1980s.
Health N' Safety concerning Vermiculite from the past
I almost forgot to add to the above: JUST IN CASE - Use only currently distributed vermiculite and new products made from vermiculite. The modern one comes from known, uncontaminated, and safe sources, according to a strict tests for eliminating health-hazards on health. Between years 1919 to 1990 one old mine located nearby Libby, Montana, USA (that mine is closed for 20 years, abanded long time now) used to produce 70 percent plus of all vermiculite sold on the US market and perhaps for some export as well. The vermiculite source from this mine unfortunately was contaminated with asbestos. Always, be aware of dangers, be cautious and protect yourself and your family. Exposure to asbestos can bring a serious health issues. If you think you could have some of the vermiculite insulation from that old mine, e.g. in theceiling, walls or floors of your house, don't disturb it, firstly, have it tested instead in an asbestos laboratory service. If the tests were positive, the lab should also suggest to you the right way for its removal or the next step on what to do about it.
Breathing in mineral rock dust is not hazardous as the asbestos so no worries about that too much. Silicosis also called quarry man's rot, grinder's or stone cutter's disease is caused by prolonged inhaling silica from exposure to extreme dusty working environment. Silicosis is not dangerous as asbestosis. People working on a daily bases in the dusty environment start to experience short breath as a result of their lungs being gradually blocked deep by dust particles. It is just the same dust we can commonly get from soil, stones, concrete, earth. I blocked my lungs once by the dust produced from routing refractory insulating firebricks for half a day; i'll never do that without respirator again it did hurt badly for something like two days, it get's ya sort of aj unputupable feeling. I really felt I had heavy stone on my chest. How about this, the fine silica dust is also responsible for the longest 45 letters long English word: Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis which is the correct medical name of the lung disease caused by inhaling dust from volcanic rock.
