Construction Workers We're Making a Difference.

Construction Workers & Mesothelioma

When it comes to individuals who are at risk for mesothelioma, construction workers are one of the most prominent at-risk groups. Individuals working in the construction industry are often exposed to asbestos, a substance responsible for causing many cases of mesothelioma. Researchers have estimated that over one million construction workers are exposed to asbestos every single year.

If you are a construction worker or you have a loved one who is a construction worker and has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it’s important that you know your rights. You could be entitled to injury compensation.

Contact a mesothelioma attorney from our team at Bailey Cowan Heckaman PLLC today to discuss your case.

Why Are Construction Workers at Risk for Mesothelioma?

Asbestos was used in many construction products from at least the 1920s to the 1980s. By the 1970s, the dangers of asbestos were beginning to cause changes in government regulations for construction workers. By the 1980s, asbestos was no longer used in building projects as its link with mesothelioma and other dangerous diseases such as asbestosis and lung cancer was discovered.

Unfortunately, this does not mean that construction workers are not exposed to these products. Even trace amounts of asbestos fibers can lead to serious health repercussions. Individuals who may be at risk include:

  • Insulators
  • Plumbers
  • Sheet metal workers
  • Bricklayers
  • Electricians
  • Drywall workers
  • Carpenters
  • Welders

OSHA Safety Rules & Asbestos

The OSHA has established rules to protect construction workers who are working in areas where asbestos may be present. Workers should wear protective garments, and employers should ensure that there are safe decontamination zones. In some scenarios, employers may even be required to ensure that workers receive regular medical exams.
