Does Your Work Expose You to Asbestos?

Legally Reviewed by Joseph P. Williams on July 1, 2023

Although asbestos was once commonplace in various industries due to its fire-resistant properties, it has now been recognized as a major health hazard. Exposure to this dangerous substance can lead to life-altering conditions, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. Despite being universally recognized as detrimental to public health, asbestos is still encountered in many workplaces, especially in the construction and mining industries. If you have been exposed to asbestos at work, you may have grounds to seek justice for your physical, emotional, and financial losses.

Careers With the Highest Rate of Asbestos Exposure

Throughout the last century, asbestos was used in countless products, from construction materials to housewares. Unfortunately, asbestos is still the world’s number one cause of work-related deaths. However, exposure is more common in some industries than others. A few occupations with a high risk of asbestos exposure include the following:

  • Construction workers
  • Industrial workers
  • Firefighters
  • Insulation installers
  • Textile mill workers
  • Power plant workers
  • Shipyard workers
  • Miners
  • Navy veterans
  • Demolition workers

While this list includes some of the most at-risk occupations, many more careers put their workers in danger of asbestos exposure. If you suspect you have been exposed to asbestos while on the job, it is essential to seek medical attention and contact the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) as soon as possible. 

After seeking prompt medical care, contact an experienced asbestos and mesothelioma attorney. Your attorney can help you determine your next steps and work to recover compensation for the damages you have endured.
