Asbestos

Asbestos


Those who work in construction, mining, or shipping find themselves at particular risk of exposure to asbestos. Asbestos, long ago praised for its durability and heat-resistant qualities, was once used in the manufacturing of ceiling and floor tiles.

Asbestos appeared as insulation around steam pipes, as soundproofing in public spaces, and as a spray on walls and ceilings. It was commonly used in the construction of schools before 1980.

What Are the Risks?

The most common harm caused by exposure to asbestos is mesothelioma. This form of cancer is often fatal. It attacks the lining of the lungs causing inflammation and severe respiratory distress in those who have been exposed. Sadly, the long-term effects of asbestos exposure, including mesothelioma, could take decades to make themselves known after a victim’s initial contact.

The Threat Lingers

Even though American manufacturers stopped using asbestos in their products decades ago, the threat still lingers. Asbestos products are frequently encountered in older buildings—particularly schools. Disturbing those products during construction, demolition, or renovation can cause asbestos particles to become airborne, which dramatically increases the risk of exposure.
