What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a general name given to a group of minerals that are naturally occurring and used in specific products. It has been used for many decades in products like construction materials and vehicle brakes because it is resistant to heat and corrosion.

Asbestos can include the following minerals: chrysotile, tremolite asbestos, amosite, crocidolite,  anthophyllite asbestos and actinolite asbestos. Many of these minerals can be altered and used in various ways.

Asbestos fibers are like microscopic needles, which is why asbestos exposure is so dangerous for workers. When people inhale asbestos fibers, they can cause serious diseases of the lungs and other organs that could take anywhere from two to five decades until symptoms appear.

Our lungs and other organs have difficulty getting rid of these tiny asbestos fibers and they can remain in our bodies for decades, causing a build-up of scar-like tissue within the lungs that can cause a person to have difficulty breathing or can lead to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer related to asbestos exposure. Most patients who are diagnosed with mesothelioma die within a year of diagnosis.

People, especially  men, are more susceptible to being exposed to asbestos while working in general industry jobs, including construction, manufacturing and other workplaces where they may come into some sort of contact with asbestos materials. Even teachers and custodial workers in a school may be exposed to asbestos in older school buildings when asbestos was often used in construction materials.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration now has stringent guidelines for companies that employ workers who may come into contact with asbestos, such as jobs that involve the demolition of older buildings.

Employers are required to provide protective clothing, face shields, googles, respirators and other protective gear for employees who may come into contact with asbestos materials. Employers must also provide decontamination areas for employees who are exposed to asbestos so workers don't carry asbestos fibers home with them on their hair and clothing, which could expose their families to asbestos.

In some industries, including construction and shipyards, employers must give medical exams for their employees who are exposed for 30 days or more per year to higher levels of asbestos.

If you feel you may have been exposed to asbestos in the workplace, even if it may have been many decades ago, it's important to talk to your doctor about your asbestos exposure.
