U.S. Department of Labor, 2003.
Resumen (en inglés): Effective management of employee safety and health protection is a decisive factor in reducing the extent and severity of work-related injuries and illnesses and their related costs. To assist employers and employees in the construction industry, this 2003 publication addresses the OSHA asbestos standard and methods of compliance. Because very few asbestos containing products are being installed today, most worker exposures occur during the removal of asbestos and the renovation and maintenance of buildings and structures containing asbestos. This document provides an introduction, provisions of the OSHA standard, methods of compliance, and OSHA Assistance. An overall commitment to workplace safety and health can add value to a business, to the workplace, and to lives.
