Janitor rehired after reporting asbestos exposure

Teachers dedicate their lives to educating South Carolina's youth. This can be an incredibly rewarding career path, but school administrations might not be doing enough to protect them. For example, asbestos exposure is a serious concern for teachers and other employees who work in older school buildings, and some school districts are actively trying to conceal these health risks.

Victims are still dying from asbestos exposure

There is no doubt that asbestos is an extremely durable, fire-resistant substance. However, there is also no doubt that it is extremely toxic to human beings. Despite the dangers, adults and children in South Carolina probably face a much higher risk of asbestos exposure than they might think.

Asbestos exposure at home can start in the workplace

Working with asbestos is a health hazard. But what workers in South Carolina might not know is that their loved ones at home are also at risk for asbestos exposure. Contaminants and toxins do not necessarily stay contained within a workplace, and many workers inadvertently carry these dangers home with them.
