Asbestos

At one time, asbestos was lauded for its diverse range of effective applications. In particular, a number of industries chose to work with asbestos because of its natural resistance to heat and, by extension, to fire. Once it was discovered that asbestos inhalation was closely associated with a specific form of cancer—mesothelioma—the material had already been in use for a significant period of time.

Professions with a Risk of Asbestos Exposure

Even after many industry leaders became aware of the serious health consequences of asbestos inhalation, a number of companies continued to utilize the material in their products and processes. While just about anyone may potentially be exposed to asbestos, people in the following professions may have been at particular risk:

  • Industrial labor
  • Automotive manufacturing/repair
  • Construction
  • Oil drilling
  • Shipbuilding
  • Firefighting

Though the material is now heavily restricted in the United States, many people who live in and work around older buildings may still be at risk of asbestos exposure.
