Occupations at Risk for Mesothelioma

Maybe you once worked a part-time construction job after high school or spent 30 years working in manufacturing. If so, you may have been breathing in harmful asbestos and not even known it.

The effects of asbestos exposure aren't often realized until many decades later when exposed workers learn they have mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer.

About 75 occupations are known to have had workers exposed to asbestos. The effect of this exposure isn't yet fully realized. But one study estimated that more than 50 percent of workers exposed to asbestos while on the job between 1940 and 1970 could be living with mesothelioma.

Asbestos was used throughout the 20th Century for many household and manufacturing products because of its ability to be resilient to heat, chemicals, electricity and water. Asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral that in its original form is made of tiny fibers. Those fibers are so small that you often can't see them as they are floating in the air. As a result, the asbestos fibers are breathed in by people who work with or near it, causing cancer decades later.

Asbestos became an integral part of life. It was used in countless construction, commercial and household materials and products, from concrete and pipes to insulation, flooring and fire retardant coatings. Asbestos was even used in mattresses and hats and gloves.

Asbestos is still found in many older buildings, including schools, factories and homes.   

The most dangerous job that contained the most potential for contracting mesothelioma is mining. While asbestos is no longer mined in the United States, many American miners throughout the years have suffered from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases because asbestos was located alongside the other minerals they were mining.

The second most dangerous asbestos-related job involves the construction trades. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reported that between 1990-1999, nearly one-fourth of worker deaths were caused by on-the-job asbestos exposure.

Other occupations that are vulnerable to asbestos exposure include:

•    Ship yard workers
•    Industrial chemical manufacturing workers
•    Railroad workers
•    Mineral and stone product workers
•    Government employees
•    Mill workers
•    Electrical workers
•    School employees, including teachers

Asbestos was used often in the construction of ships during the last century, which meant that a large percentage of World War II Navy veterans also were exposed to asbestos.

The emergency personnel who responded to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks at the World Trade Center also were exposed to asbestos-contaminated dust and debris. They are beginning to develop symptoms of asbestos-related illnesses, as well as the construction workers who later worked at the scene to clear the building debris.

Employees who have or are working in these types of environments are mostly blue collar workers, who later discover they've paid a high price for their choice of occupation.
