Asbestos and lead are found in many building and homes built before the late 1970s. Asbestos can be found in surfacing treatments, pipe insulation, and a wide variety of other building components. It poses a potential health risk when asbestos fibers are released from the material or product containing it. Overexposure to lead is one of the leading causes of workplace illnesses according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Lead poisoning is also considered the leading environmentally induced illness in children. These health threats are the reason that the reduction of asbestos and lead exposure is a strategic priority for a variety of government regulatory agencies.
