Tile Setters and Asbestos Exposure

Tile setters are skilled professionals who compile tiles to create intricate designs in buildings, homes and other structures.

When tile setters sand, drill, cut, scrape or remove a tile containing asbestos, the particles are distributed into the air and inhaled. Tile setters frequently exposed to these asbestos products are at a higher risk of developing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.

Tile setters who installed, worked on or removed floor tiles before 1980 are most at risk for being diagnosed with mesothelioma.
