July was a busy month for ADAO!
Today is World Lung Cancer Day. ADAO is pleased to partner for prevention with the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), a leading organization with exceptional prevention materials and campaigns. Check out today's blog and their press release. Since our UK meeting, our collaborative efforts have become even stronger.
Joining the London Asbestos Support Awareness Group (LASAG) in the UK for Action Mesothelioma Day was a great reminder that we ARE stronger together.
Facing industry mounting pressure and Trump's EPA, I wrote
"EPA and TSCA Implementation: Without an Asbestos Ban, You Can Put Lipstick on This Pig, But it's Still a Pig"
where you can read about EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt's resignation, and t
he EPA Problem Formulation Document which, as predicted, excludes the risk evaluation for
legacy asbestos and the Libby Amphibole that linger in our homes, schools, workplaces, and our environment
. In addition to these exclusions, the EPA claims a SNUR is a ban -which is absolutely deadly and false! And yes, ADAO has a strategic plan to ban imports and prevent exposure.
Help us urge the EPA to do their job and ban asbestos by signing the
petition to the EPA
! On August 8, we will submit the petition, again, to the EPA.
Together, we are making change happen!
