Common Professions And Trades Affected By Asbestos
Workers Exposed To Asbestos Need To Understand Their Rights
Workplace exposure to asbestos has contributed to thousands of cases of mesothelioma every year in the United States. Asbestos was used in all types of professions during the 1950s to 1970s, exposing workers from many different professions and trades to life-altering illnesses.
The number of professions affected by asbestos exposure is difficult to count. However, some of the most common workers and trades affected by asbestos exposure include:
- Construction workers
- Shipyard workers
- Auto mechanics
- Railroad workers
- Assembly workers
- Electrical workers
- Textile workers
You may have been exposed to asbestos while working in one of these trades. However, these are just some of the professions known for asbestos exposure.
Workers are supposed to be protected when working with hazardous products and chemicals. Unfortunately, some workers were exposed to asbestos for decades. Toxic exposure like this can lead to life-long complications and expensive medical treatment.
