Steamfitters face multiple risks for asbestos exposure. Not only was asbestos commonly used for pipe insulation throughout much of the 20th century, it can also be found in building materials such as plaster, as well as on boilers, turbines, gaskets, valves, and other items steamfitters commonly work with.
Many people who worked with piping systems through the 1980s have been exposed to asbestos, but are only now being diagnosed with mesothelioma and other asbestosis-related illnesses. This is because asbestos can stay in the body for years and may not produce an illness until long after the initial exposure. Because of the delayed manifestation of symptoms, victims do not need to worry about a statute of limitations for filing a claim until after they are diagnosed with an asbestos disease, which our New York asbestos attorney can help with.

STEAMFITTERS ARE STILL AT RISK
Many steamfitters were exposed to asbestos fibers in the 20th century when it was still in use in new construction. However, a number of items that have been insulated with asbestos are still in use throughout New York.
Modern day steamfitters are more likely to use protective gear, but there is still no surefire way to guard against asbestos exposure. However, because it can take upwards of 50 years for asbestos exposure to result in mesothelioma or asbestosis, today’s workers may be completely unaware of the damage being done.
