In 1989, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned most asbestos-based products due to the health problems that it causes. However, asbestos is still present in many older structures, where it poses a health risk to construction and maintenance workers.
Employees working in the following occupations may be at risk to asbestos exposure:
- Construction workers
- Pipe fitters
- Brake mechanics
An additional victim that is often not considered are the children and family members of those that have been exposed to asbestos. Quite often, the dust and fibers would stick to the clothing of workers, who would then bring that dust with them when they came home from work.
As a result, many women and children passively inhaled the toxic dust, which then began to create this serious personal injury, including lung damage, mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.
