This story about an on going asbestos investigation blows my mind.

I just cannot believe this goes on in today's age. So apparently the management team at a Sudbury hospital thought it would be a good idea to hire their laundry and dishwashing service suppliers to remove asbestos from a boiler. It blows our mind over here. NO TRAINING, NO PPE, NO CLUE. Please find yourselves a professional service, or contact Niagara Environmental Dynamics Ltd. to take care of your abatement issues.

"Asbestos is Canada's top source of workplace death"

Asbestos is not completely banned, and it seems to be a common misconception that it has been. Let's get rid of this stuff.

Here is the opening paragraph to The Globe and Mail's article "Asbestos revealed as Canada’s top cause of workplace death".  Link to the full article below.

"Asbestos exposure is the single largest on-the-job killer in Canada, accounting for more than a third of total workplace death claims approved last year and nearly a third since 1996, new national data obtained by The Globe and Mail show. The 368 death claims last year alone represent a higher number than fatalities from highway accidents, fires and chemical exposures combined."

Asbestos Removal: CALL A PROFESSIONAL!!!

I am in no way endorsing DIY abatement, but for the nay-sayer here is a news article about the 8710 3M dust mask, and how it does not effectively filter ACM. We have all used these types of masks for projects around the house; from drywall to woodworking, and unfortunately for some DIYers, Asbestos PPE. Protect yourself and the people around areas of concern, call a professional.
