When High-Risk Occupations And Job Sites Correlate With Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos exposure can come from many sources – household products, building and renovation materials, and secondhand exposure. However, the majority of people who develop serious diseases due to asbestos are individuals who have worked in the manufacturing, construction, oil refining, shipbuilding and chemical plant industries and had extended exposure to asbestos products.

These workers may have directly handled the asbestos products, or they could have worked in an area where asbestos products were used. In either scenario, the workers may have been inhaling the dangerous asbestos fibers on a daily basis. Asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma, usually take decades to develop, but manufacturers and past employers can still be held accountable.
