Construction Workers & Exposure to Asbestos
Asbestos was once used in a variety of materials as a result of asbestos’ heat resistant and fireproof nature. After discovering that long-term or extensive exposure to asbestos could result in a number of deadly diseases, however, many uses for the substance were prohibited.
Even though a number of companies eliminated the use of asbestos, a countless number of workers were exposed to this dangerous material prior to elimination.Common Diseases Caused by Asbestos Exposure in Construction Workers
There are a number of deadly diseases that can be caused by asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that results only from the inhalation of asbestos fibers.
