How could a construction or a remodeling/renovation worker been exposed to asbestos?
A construction worker or skilled tradesperson could have easily been exposed to asbestos on a residential or commercial jobsite prior to 1980. The most at risk construction trades include:
- Tile installer
- Drywall Installer
- Concrete Worker
- Boiler Technician
Note: These types of construction workers could have easily been exposed to asbestos by simply going to work each day, especially if their work happened before 1980; there were no prohibitions or bans on asbestos related products prior to 1980.
As the Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to discuss with anyone interested, a remodeling construction worker could still be exposed to asbestos on a regular basis. The Center recently heard from a construction crew member in Oklahoma who had just completed the renovation of a commercial structure who was exposed to significant amounts of asbestos for about 30 days. He and his crew members completely gutted a commercial building that was built in the 1950s. His asbestos exposure included insulation, drywall, insulated plumbing pipes, floor tiles, an old boiler, and radiators. According to the worker, "He and his coworkers would leave work each day and be covered head to foot in asbestos."
According to the Mesothelioma Victims Center, "These are the types of construction practices that caused people in the construction industry to be exposed to asbestos prior to 1980 and even today. Mesothelioma typically takes between 30 to 50 years to fully develop. If you are a current of former construction worker and you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma please call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure you are talking directly with some of the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys who really do get the best compensation results for their clients." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
According to the CDC the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.
However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives a construction worker or skilled tradesman with mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.
High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, manufacturing/factory workers, pulp or paper mill workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, construction workers, insulators, rail road worker, roofers, or firemen. As a rule, these types of workers were exposed to asbestos in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. US Navy Veterans make up about one-third of all US Citizens who are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
