Is there a need to worry about asbestos poisoning?
If a structure is 25 years old or newer, is there a need to worry about asbestos poisoning?

Yes there is. The United States is one of very few major industrialized countries where asbestos is not banned entirely in all of its forms. It continues to be a part of gaskets, friction products, roofing materials, fireproofing materials, vinyl floor tile and a list of other building products that are used daily.
These products pose no danger as long as they stay in good condition. But cutting, sanding or damaging them can result in the release of asbestos. Since contractors might disturb these materials on a regular basis due to the type of work they do, they need to be aware of the dangers and possible liability.
