Asbestos is a serious health hazard commonly found in our environment today.  This module is designed to provide an overview of asbestos and its associated hazards. It is important for employees who may work in buildings that contain asbestos to know where it is likely to be found and how to avoid exposure. 

This module was prepared with information provided by the Oklahoma Department of Labor, the ATSDR, the EPA and OSHA.

Check out OSU EHS's online Asbestos Information Library for additional asbestos information.
