Asbestos exposure Archives

Airport employees very worried about asbestos exposure

Evidence suggests that repeated ingestion or breathing of asbestos particles can cause permanent lung damage, as well as an increased risk for other respiratory illnesses. Perhaps some of the airport workers in another state who are concerned about their own health and safety are aware of such facts, perhaps not. Either way, they have told their employers and reporters that they believe they have reason to worry about asbestos exposure in relation to a construction project that occurred at their workplace. Minnesota workers whose jobs put them in close vicinity to construction work may want to pay close attention to the situation.

Jobs that place Minnesota residents at risk for asbestos exposure

Some jobs in Minnesota are obviously more dangerous than others. However, not all dangers associated with work are immediately apparent. For instance, many types of work are associated with asbestos exposure, which often leads to illness, even death. Proving that an injury or illness was actually caused by exposure to asbestos can be difficult since diagnosis of disease may come years after initial exposure.

How do I track down the source of my exposure to asbestos?

One of the most frustrating elements of asbestos exposure is that evidence of that exposure may not be visible for decades. This means that if and when a person is diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness, it can be incredibly difficult to determine where and when the person was exposed. 

Why are younger people still dying from asbestos exposure?

For many reasons, victims of asbestos-related illnesses are often older workers who may already be retired. This is due to the fact that asbestos is not used as widely as it was decades ago, and it can take as long as 50 years to develop symptoms of the illnesses.
