Insulation Installers (Asbestos Insulation Workers)
Did you know?
The Insulation Workers were brought directly into heavy contact with asbestos and heavy exposure. Asbestos insulation is the asbestos-containing building material that was manufactured and used heavily in construction from the 1930s to the 1970s. A large percentage of buildings (including homes) throughout the United States remain lined with asbestos insulation.
Family members are also at risk. Laborers who worked with asbestos during the day can bring asbestos fibers home on their clothes. Many wives and children of asbestos workers have been developed Mesothelioma cancer after being exposed to the asbestos fibers while washing work clothes. Insulators were involved in repair and maintenance work of asbestos in the workplace. Asbestos exposure occurs when asbestos fibers are breathed or swallowed.
Breathing Asbestos Fibers
Insulation Workers breathed in asbestos fibers on jobsites into their lungs where some of the fibers were deposited in the air passages and on the cells that make up the lungs. Some fibers move through the lungs and can remain in place for many years and may never be removed from the body.
Swallowing Asbestos Fibers
Insulation Workers also would swallow asbestos fibers on jobsites. A small number of fibers can penetrate into cells that line the stomach area and some fibers penetrate all the way into the bloodstream.
