Abatement workers

Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

The main activity of the people working in the asbestos abatement industry entails removing the asbestos remnants from buildings and other contaminated structures as it still poses a risk for the people that unknowingly interact with the contaminated materials.

Abatement workers are required to enter in direct contact with the asbestos from the construction products that were used until the 1980s. As these materials are usually found in a state of complete degradation, the asbestos contained within is in a friable state, which makes its fibers to be released more easily as they get disturbed. The people working in this line of business risk their lives on a constant basis in order to contain and eliminate the dangers concerning asbestos exposure.

The constant threat of asbestos exposure for these workers makes their job an extremely difficult one, as faulty safety equipment can exponentially raise the risk of developing in their later years, diseases like mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer by breathing in demolition dust.
