Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer. It is linked to exposure to asbestos – a mineral that many U.S. industries once widely used due to its fiber strength and fire-resistant properties.
For decades, insulators, railroad workers, construction workers, power plant workers, refinery workers and those in many other trades inhaled asbestos on a daily basis. They also brought the tiny, toxic fibers home on their hair, skin and clothes. People serving on U.S. Navy ships or working in shipyards also faced asbestos exposure.
You or a loved one may have been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma. However, the disease may trace back to asbestos exposure in the workplace which occurred many years ago. It can take anywhere from 15 to 50 years for mesothelioma symptoms to appear. If you worked near asbestos, you could have also exposed your family members to asbestos fibers and dust on your body. Those with a high risk of developing mesothelioma include:
Who Is at Risk?
Many automotive products once contained asbestos, including gaskets, clutch facings, brake pads, brake linings and transmission parts. Different bonding materials used by auto mechanics also contained asbestos.
Insulators who worked in construction, manufacturing and many other fields were once regularly exposed to asbestos fibers and dust without the protection of masks, gloves, suits and other gear.
Conductors, yardmasters, engineers, train operators and maintenance workers in the railroad industry may have worked around asbestos that was used in a variety of ways.
For years, oil refineries used asbestos-laden material to insulate tanks, valves, pumps, boilers, furnaces, turbines, pipes and other equipment. Workers also wore gloves and other protective gear containing asbestos.
Carpenters and other construction workers regularly inhaled asbestos found in tiles, shingles, insulation, caulking, paint and joint compounds. Today, workers who renovate older buildings face an exposure risk.
