Facts About Asbestos Exposure in the U.S:

January 24, 2021
  1. More than 100 million Americans have been exposed to asbestos. That’s almost a third of the population! This thing is no myth.

2. Every year, 1.3 million American construction and general industry workers alone are exposed to asbestos. These jobs put their workers at a higher risk of exposure to this poisonous substance.

3. The U.S. imported 750 tons (!!!) of raw asbestos in 2018. That’s a lot of a dangerous substance for our country to be importing.

4. But what makes asbestos so bad that you should care about all of these statistics? Well, because asbestos kills approximately 12,000-15,000 people every year.

Don’t become a statistic. Let Enviroscope make sure your property is safe and asbestos-free.
