Asbestos exposure can happen anywhere.
Given the widespread use of asbestos as an insulator, it is not only shipyards and mines where asbestos exposure can occur. Because the nature of asbestos mesothelioma and asbestosis is such that these diseases do not typically show up until many years after someone has been exposed to asbestos fibers, it is often difficult to track down where the asbestos exposure occurred once there has been an asbestos mesothelioma diagnosis--particularly if the asbestos exposure did not occur due to employment in occupations such as a boiler or furnace technician, car mechanic, construction worker, navy shipyard worker, pipe fitter, miner, or railway worker.
Asbestos awareness—knowing the places where asbestos exists or has existed—is important to understanding your asbestos exposure risk and protecting yourself from potential asbestos harm.
