The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Based on all of our research and nearly a decade of helping diagnosed victims of mesothelioma get instant access to the nation's top mesothelioma compensation attorneys and treatment options specialists, we've concluded that the reason most victims have mesothelioma might be due to the lack of OSHA many decades ago. In the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and early 1980s there were basically no federal rules when it came to asbestos exposure and what was deemed safe or toxic.”
Updated OSHA Asbestos Standards As of April 1st, 2014:
Asbestos hazards are addressed in specific standards for general industry and shipyard employment. This section highlights OSHA standards, preambles to final rules (background to final rules), Federal Registers (rules, proposed rules, and notices), directives (instructions for compliance officers), standard interpretations (official letters of interpretation of the standards) related to asbestos. https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/asbestos/standards.html
According to the Mesothelioma Victims Center, "Asbestos rules are now extremely stringent and thorough. If workplace exposure to asbestos is not properly reported, there can be huge fines or even prison time. As we would like to explain to any family or individual dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis, we cannot undo your exposure but we can make certain you have instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys and treatment option specialists whose expertise is available nationwide."
