Asbestos Exposure by Occupation
Exposure to asbestos most often occurs in the workplace. From auto mechanics and carpenters, to electricians and plumbers, workers from a wide range of industries were knowingly exposed to asbestos decades ago and are just now being diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases.
Choose from the occupations in the dropdown to learn more about asbestos exposure in different industries.
Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, a mineral used in construction, manufacturing and commercial applications. Asbestos became popular because of its fire resistant qualities. When asbestos-containing materials are disturbed, asbestos fibers become airborne. Inhaling these fibers can lead to the eventual diagnosis of an asbestos-related disease, including mesothelioma.
It typically takes between 10 to 50 years for the signs of an asbestos-related disease to surface. Because of this long latency period, workers exposed to asbestos decades ago are still becoming sick today.
