What is an Asbestos Worker?

Today, energy conservation efforts within the construction industry aim at increasing operational efficiency and reducing fuel costs.  These efforts have led to the insulation of virtually every commercial and industrial building’s furnaces, boilers, pipes and ducts.  Insulation is a tremendous energy saving tool.  Trained insulation mechanics are needed to install the insulation and weatherproofing materials.  Insulators must be mechanically inclined and enjoy working with mathematical formulas that are needed to fabricate insulation.
