Overview of Asbestos Uses
Occupational exposure is the most common means of asbestos contamination, and asbestos was widely used by the construction, automotive, shipping, and oil and gas industries. Family members of those who worked with and around asbestos were also at risk for mesothelioma or lung cancer through second-hand asbestos exposure.
