Construction Workers Face a Higher Risk of Asbestos Exposure

Construction Workers Face a Higher Risk of Asbestos Exposure

Until the 1980s, asbestos was used on many job sites throughout the United States. In the construction industry, asbestos was commonly used in a number of products such as:

  • Boilers
  • Drywall
  • Ceiling tiles and roof panels
  • Flooring
  • Insulation and fireproofing materials

This is not an exhaustive list of the potential products containing asbestos on a construction site, but should give you a better idea of how prevalent it was in almost every area of things built before the 1980s.

Have You Been Exposed?

If you worked in the construction industry prior to the 1980s or any time after in buildings erected before that time, you have a much higher risk of asbestos exposure. Lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma are the main dangers of exposure to even minimal amounts of asbestos, but these diseases can take decades before they become apparent. For this reason, many people who will suffer from asbestos exposure are as of yet unaware of the damages they will face.
