What Industries Use Asbestos?

Though asbestos poses a danger to anyone exposed, the risk is much higher for those who experienced long-term excessive exposure. Many medical professionals believe there is virtually no risk unless excessive inhalation occurred. Regardless of the degree of exposure a person must have before it becomes a problem, there are certain industries in which asbestos exposure was common. At the very least, you need to let your current doctor know if you worked in one of these industries. This way you can be vigilant in pursuing a diagnosis should any symptoms of mesothelioma arise.

Military members, especially those who served during the Korean Conflict and World War II were likely exposed to asbestos. Those in the Navy had the highest exposure, but any soldier could have spent time in an area with air born asbestos. The material was used in building the naval ships of the time and other items on board ships also contained asbestos. Members of the Air Force, Navy, and Marines who spent time on ships were likely exposed. There might also have been exposure on military bases or in the construction of automobiles or other tools.

Home Construction

Asbestos was a popular material used in the construction of homes up until the 1980s. It was eventually phased out of use completely by the beginning of the 1990s. Anyone who worked in the home construction industry prior to this time likely came into contact with asbestos. It was an affordable material that provided a lot of benefits. Unfortunately, use continued after it was identified as a known carcinogen, so exposure went far beyond the time it should have, creating risk for more people than necessary.

Commercial Construction

Commercial construction was also a problem. Asbestos was used and is still present in many older school and office buildings. Again, this was because it was cheap and effective and had many uses.

Chemical and Manufacturing Plants

Asbestos was used in the manufacturing of a variety of materials. If you worked in a plant that created household appliances, certain chemicals, building materials, or a variety of other items, you were put at risk.

It is important to assess your history of exposure because that can play a role in detecting mesothelioma earlier. The disease is often not caught until the later stages because the symptoms mimic less serious illnesses. If your doctor is aware of your exposure, he or she can be more aggressive in finding a diagnosis for your problem.
