Asbestos in the Milling Industry
If you have worked as a millwright in any industry, you are at risk for mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illnesses. Due to its heat resistant properties, asbestos has been used in many items millwrights come into daily contact with such as pipe coverings and insulation, valves and packaging, gaskets, and boilers. When these items are sawed, ground, sanded, drilled, or otherwise disturbed, they release asbestos fibers that can lead to serious illness and even death.
Pleural and other types of mesothelioma can only be caused by asbestos exposure, making a recent study conducted on former New York City millwrights all the more telling. In this study, nearly 50 percent of participants showed pleural abnormalities consistent with mesothelioma. Sadly, exposure to this deadly toxin continues in the millwright trade even today.
