Asbestos in telecommunications equipment
Working late tonight researching the uses of asbestos in telephone communications equipment. It is a little known fact that the central offices were often laced with asbestos in the equipment and the construction materials. Even the floors were asbestos-containing vinyl floor tile and those were drilled in daily to install and move equipment. I have successfully represented telephone communications workers, and hope we can get the word out to more of these dedicated folks so that they can insist on the removal of these materials from their workplace.
