Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that has been added to many different building materials. It can be encountered in many forms in buildings and on construction projects. Improper disturbance can result in asbestos exposures to workers or building occupants. As such, it can have a significant impact on an insurance claim.
This complimentary seminar reviews the major concerns with asbestos today and is designed to provide you with the knowledge to understand the history of asbestos use, common type of asbestos-containing materials, and associated hazards as well as regulatory requirements.
