Jobs at Risk for Asbestos Exposures

Many different types of workers in the past have suffered exposure to asbestos fibers in some form as part of their daily jobs. Sadly, their employers and other companies did little or nothing to protect these workers from the hazards associated with asbestos. Some of these hazards include a later diagnosis of Mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, or non-malignant diseases such as asbestosis or pleural plaques. Many asbestos companies actively concealed the dangers from their workers and workers' families.

Who could have been at risk?

The following list identifies the most predominant trades and occupations that are known to have had exposure to asbestos fibers. If you or a family member worked in one of these occupations, you may have been exposed to asbestos.
