Brick, Cement & Stone Masons

Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

Spending the majority of time on construction sites, masons have worked directly with asbestos containing materials or had them in their proximity. During their work, they risked being exposed to asbestos every step of the way. Asbestos dust was created when brick masons would mix asbestos containing cement and cut bricks down for size. Asbestos fibers would also be released into the air when these workers would sand the materials using power tools.

Working on repair jobs too, masons would come in contact with the old materials used in the construction of buildings years prior.

The asbestos fibers from different materials, like stucco dust for example, that fell on employees' skin, hair, or working gear could also place their families at risk when they would return home. The diseases related with the inhalation of toxic asbestos fibers like mesothelioma or lung cancer can be fatal if diagnosed late.
