Occupational Asbestos Exposure is Still a Risk

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

“According to the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety, more than 75 occupational groups have exposed workers to asbestos.” The top five at-risk occupations are: firefighters, industrial workers, power plant workers, shipyard workers, and construction workers. PMI knows that firefighters and those who work at height in industrial locations may be exposed to asbestos at some point throughout their career. We are pleased to share some information from The Mesothelioma Center to help increase education and inform the public of the ongoing dangers of asbestos. You can learn more about the occupations and industries that place people at risk of asbestos exposure at www.asbestos.com/occupations/.
