Asbestos Exposure in the Workplace
For decades, the asbestos industry exposed workers to their products while never warning them of the dangers of the dust they breathed on a daily basis. Many of these workers were employed in industry or in construction trades, where they often described the “snowy conditions” of their workplace as products were cut, mixed or sprayed. They were never given dust masks, nor were dust counts ever taken. In many cases, ventilation was inadequate.
Sites where asbestos exposure was typically the heaviest include:
"...try to get the picture of a guy who normally stands 6'2" tall. Has swung a hammer all his life and has forearms that resemble Popeye the Sailor. He has a very sharp mind and a great sense of humor..."
Trades mostly commonly working with or around asbestos include:
Asbestos in brakes - learn about mesothelioma risk to auto repair technicians.
Asbestos in buildings - learn about mesothelioma risk to construction workers.
