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.
