Workers at a U.S. Attorney’s Office in Connecticut have reportedly expressed concerns over asbestos inside the federal building.
Mesothelioma Cancer News (Bridgeport, Connecticut) – Concerns about asbestos in a federal building in Connecticut have arisen among workers. As reported by the Connecticut Post, U.S. Attorney’s Office workers are being moved from the Brien McMahon Federal Building due to concerns about asbestos used in the construction of the building decades earlier.
Assistant U.S. John Hughes, chief of the civil division in Connecticut and relocation committee head, is quoted in the report as stating of the move, “We’re looking for 8,000 square feet of space, with the potential to expand to 10,000 square feet… We would like to be as close as possible to the courthouse, hopefully within three to four blocks.”
Asbestos exposure can lead to serious health complications including mesothelioma cancer and asbestosis.
