How Are Machinists Exposed To Asbestos?

Machinists' work often involves cutting, scraping, grinding and other processes that use friction. These motions stir up large clouds of dust that may contain asbestos fibers. In addition, the gloves, blankets and aprons that machinists once wore to protect them from heat and sparks were often made of asbestos due to its heat resistance. When someone inhales asbestos fibers, the substance sticks to the lining of the lungs and heart, frequently leading to serious illness.

Many Machinists' Work Environments Contain Asbestos Fibers

Machinists work in a variety of industries. As a result, they often face asbestos exposure from multiple sources. Just a few of the work environments that can expose machinists to this dangerous substance include:

  • Shipyards
  • Construction sites
  • Factories
  • Workshops
  • Manufacturing companies
