Asbestos remnants have been found in several buildings across the campus of California State University, Northridge (CSUN), prompting the university to send out a health warning to all students and employees.
The Daily Sundial recently reported on findings in a January report from the school’s health & safety department that remnants of asbestos products were still present in a number of buildings. The dangerous fibers were discovered during building inspections to make sure they were up-to-code.
Floor and ceiling tiles, water pipes, piping insulation, weather stripping, and putty used in buildings’ construction were found to still contain asbestos fibers. The buildings have steadily had asbestos-containing materials removed from them over the last 15 years.
While the school insisted that the asbestos products posed pose no immediate health threats, they also warned faculty and students to avoid drilling holes or hanging objects from walls or ceilings in the buildings singled out in the report.
If you or a loved one has been exposed to dangerous asbestos products and been diagnosed with mesothelioma, there may be legal action worth pursuing. Call Sokolove Law today for a free legal consultation regarding an asbestos lawsuit.
