Offers a school asbestos information section to inform parents about the risks of asbestos exposure in schools. The section provides information on materials that commonly contain asbestos, frequently asked questions, news items, and how parents can find out if their school contains asbestos. In the United States, schools that contain asbestos are required to have management plans and many schools have removed, sealed, or enclosed the material. However as buildings age and require maintenance and repair, the odds of workers, teachers and students accidentally coming into contact with asbestos containing materials has increased.
