Asbestos exposure - (5/19/2008)
Asbestos.com was created in 1995 to warn Americans about the dangers of asbestos exposure. We have been campaigning across the web to educate those that are at risk.
As you probably know, many plumbers and pipefitters are exposed to asbestos during their careers. Asbestos was used very commonly as insulation for pipes and pipe systems in the 1970s because of its resistance to heat. This exposure can result in a number of life-threatening respiratory conditions, as well as mesothelioma, a deadly cancer associated only with asbestos exposure.
In order to help better educate people of all occupations on asbestos exposure, we have created an entire occupations section on our website at http://www.asbestos.com/occupations/. We even have specific sections for plumbers and pipefitters. We'd like to suggest our site as a resource to you.
