Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

Until the beginning of the 1980’s, electricians were exposed to the fibers of asbestos incorporated into building materials, such as cement, insulation and compound. Electricians were also exposed to asbestos through the very products they installed and maintained during their projects. For installing the electrical equipment needed, most electricians had to drill into walls, floors and ceiling tiles - products that contained asbestos.

When they drilled through asbestos contaminated materials, dust would spread into the air and the asbestos fibers would become airborne and dangerous to anyone who unknowingly inhaled them.

Electricians who were not working directly with asbestos were quite often in the vicinity of other construction workers including carpenters and plumbers that also handled asbestos-containing materials.
