There is a pending lawsuit in Federal Court in Seattle against the manufacturers of fire resistant products. The plaintiffs are asking a Judge to require manufacturer Glaxon to manufacture a safe type of fire-proof cover. The current fireproofing system on the market contains asbestos. The lawsuit is seeking class action, and compensation for the costs of testing for this specific substance.
The problem with most companies when it comes to Fremont asbestos testing in their facilities is that they don’t really know if they have a problem or not. This makes them vulnerable to lawsuits that might not be their fault in the end. If they are found to contain asbestos, they can be sued for health damages that would exceed the purchase price of the product. A lot of money can be lost because of this negligence.
The best thing to do is to make sure that a company has conducted adequate testing on their facility. When a company does have testing conducted and there is a problem with the asbestos, they need to know how to deal with the lawsuits that result. A company needs to test all of its products for this mineral, not just one. This is why you see so many “asbestos free” statements on TV.
What this means is that a company has to perform random asbestos testing throughout its operations. It doesn’t matter if the area is one hundred percent pre asbestos free. A company needs to know how much asbestos a building is supposed to have and what kind of health risk it could present to people who are regularly using the area. For example, some of these types of materials release formaldehyde when they are damaged or broken down.
It would be a good idea to have the company send out a routine testing for airborne particles. There are many companies that specialize in this particular testing. They should also do the patch testing as well as the soil testing. If there is a concern with one or more areas, it will be necessary to send out additional inspectors to take samples and to review them for possible asbestos. In the event that additional testing is required, it will be best to notify the homeowners so that they can have the testing done as soon as possible.
The most important thing about asbestos testing is that the right company is chosen to perform it. If testing is performed improperly, lawsuits can occur. This can result in further damage to the economy in the long run because the cost of replacing ruined property could be very expensive. The best way to protect yourself from this type of liability is to make sure that the company you hire to perform the asbestos inspection has conducted the proper asbestos testing as mentioned above. If they don’t, you might want to look into hiring a different company.
