There is asbestos being removed in a building or I see a “DANGER Asbestos” sign – can I be in the building, is it safe?

Working in, or occupying, a building during asbestos removal is safe.  There are many precautions taken and the “DANGER Asbestos” sign is required by state and federal regulations regardless of the hazard.  The sign is to prevent unauthorized persons from walking into a regulated asbestos work area.
