From the early 1900s and into the 1980s, plumbers may have been exposed to asbestos materials on the job. Plumbers could have encountered asbestos-containing products through their installation and repair work on sewer and water pipes and through their work with boilers, pumps and valves manufactured between the 1900s and 1980s.
Various exposures to asbestos have caused plumbers to be at an increased risk of developing asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma.
Plumbers’ asbestos exposure may have occurred through a variety of common activities including, but not limited to:
One of the most common asbestos products plumbers came into contact with was asbestos-cement pipe, a composite material made of Portland cement reinforced with asbestos fiber. It was especially popular in the construction industry because of its strength and durability.
A variety of other asbestos products were used throughout plumbing and piping systems in residential, commercial and industrial sites including:
Plumbers regularly worked around other trades such as carpenters, insulators and drywallers, who also used asbestos materials. Asbestos building materials used by these trades included joint compound, siding, floor tiles, and ceiling tiles.
