(PRWEB) October 31, 2014
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is extremely worried about former construction workers in any state who were exposed to asbestos in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or the 1980s because up until the mid 1980s, there essentially were no rules when it came to construction workers and asbestos exposure. “This is especially true if the worker was exposed to asbestos during a building demolition. Because of what our research has found, we've began an all-new campaign to educate those who may have been unknowingly exposed to asbestos. All we can do is provide the facts. We rely on families and those suffering from mesothelioma to call us at 866-714-6466 so that we can give them all the knowledge we have on mesothelioma. This includes connecting families with the nation's best mesothelioma compensation attorneys who will perform a wide range of tasks in order to bring the victim as much comfort as possible,” says the Mesothelioma Victims Center.
“The facts that we currently know are found on the EPA's website,” says the Mesothelioma Victims Center.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “What needs to be pointed out is how rigorous the current set of rules about safety steps that first must be strictly applied if a building with asbestos is about to be demolished. These stringent rules are in place to keep workers safe. Workers from the 1950s through the late 1980s were not as well trained today about the toxic hazards of asbestos exposure.
