Asbestos High-Risk Occupations
Because asbestos was so widely used during the last century, millions of people worked in places where they were exposed to asbestos fibers. For some, the exposure was minimal. For others working in what we now know are high-risk occupations, asbestos exposure was a routine and pervasive part of daily employment.
People who were routinely exposed to deadly asbestos fibers in the workplace during the product’s most widespread period of use include:
- Construction/remodeling workers
- Welders, metal machinists and iron workers
- Plumbers and pipefitters
- Shipyard employees
- Railroad employees
- Auto mechanics
- Maintenance workers
- Boiler mechanics
- Insulation installers
- Chemical plant workers
- Factory workers
- Military personnel and defense contractor employees
- Union workers and union resources
