ADAO is hard at work, planning for our 9th Asbestos Awareness Conference in Washington DC! Our past conferences have been overwhelmingly successful, and we want to continue sharing the powerful presentations from our last conference. We were honored to have so many amazing individuals come together at the 8th Asbestos Awareness Conference to discuss the impact of asbestos on public health, the environment, and the economy. We are excited to be able to share the inspiring and exceptional presenters, honorees, and discussion panels with our supportive community. Tony Rich, an industrial hygienist and amateur photographer, joined ADAO at the conference to present his collection of asbestos-related photographs. It is a privilege to share the video of Tony’s presentation: Asbestos: A Photographic Retrospective.

Thanks to Tony Rich, ADAO has a powerful “Asbestos: See For Yourself” PowerPoint presentation with many of Tony’s photographs.

For the past 18 years, Tony has specialized in asbestos-related work, including: inspections, abatement monitoring, project management and regulatory compliance, air sample analyses, and worker training. He has also received training from the McCrone Research Institute for the microscopical identification of bulk asbestos via polarized-light microscopy (PLM). In promotion of asbestos awareness advocacy, Tony has made available many of his asbestos images, provided asbestos product materials for research and education purposes, and created asbestos training display aides for various organizations worldwide (including an exhibit in Washington D.C.).

In unity,
