Read about the Asbestos Project Plan and its Strategies.
The attorneys at the personal injury law firm of Weitz & Luxenberg have decades of experience defending victims’ rights in practice areas that include: accidents/general injury, dangerous drugs, medical malpractice, and environmental pollutants.
Project Plan Strategies: EPA and other federal organizations manage a number of issues related to asbestos, such as asbestos contamination and related clean-up and health assessment efforts at a number of sites across the U.S. To help focus its efforts, the Agency convened a Blue Ribbon Panel of technical and policy experts in the asbestos field, called the Asbestos Focus Group, to offer the Agency recommendations and options on effective asbestos regulatory, outreach and education approaches.
The panel’s Asbestos Strategies report offers ten short- and long-term recommendations for setting priorities. For more detail on the panel’s recommendations, several of which are adopted in this Project Plan, see Appendix, p.14. In addition, various information and research needs have been identified as a result of the Agency’s renewed focus on asbestos. EPA developed this Project Plan to provide an overview of the various ongoing and planned activities, involving multiple EPA programs and regions, to address many of these issues.
This Asbestos Project Plan provides a framework for a coordinated Agency-wide approach to identify, evaluate and reduce the risk to human health from asbestos exposure. As the Agency obtains new information, it may take additional appropriate steps as needed to address asbestos exposure and reduce risk to the public.
