Asbestos exposure may be a risk to family members

Exposure to the microscopic asbestos fibers may not only affect one person. An exposed worker may have brought the fibers into his or her home, putting family members at risk of mesothelioma from second-hand exposure.

Some occupations carry risk of asbestos exposure, including:

  • Pipe fitters
  • Shipyard workers
  • Auto mechanics
  • Sheet metal workers
  • Construction workers
  • Welders
  • Electricians

An estimated 21 million workers have been exposed to asbestos in their workplaces since the 1950s. Also, thousands of new cases of asbestos-related disease are diagnosed every year.

The following products generally contained asbestos:

  • Automobile brake systems
  • Bulk steel and other metals
  • Construction materials
  • Nautical vessels
  • Pipe fitting materials
