The occupational safety and health administration has regulations concerning the health and safety of everyone in the workplace. This federal agency regulates the standards for any industry that works with OSHA Asbestos Abatement or that manufactures anything made of asbestos such as the shipping industry and some automobile parts. OSHA provides a certain amount of training for the employers of industry and other individuals that work in the asbestos related fields.
