Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

As an engineer you usually oversee the production process in a factory, your main concern being the quality resulted at the end. Even though most of the time engineers didn’t handle directly the asbestos contaminated materials, they were exposed to the asbestos dust spread on the work site. Before the late 1970’s, asbestos exposure was most common in the following engineering specialties: civil, stationary, industrial, mechanical, electrical and aeronautical.

Regardless of their industry, engineers present on the working sites faced similar levels of asbestos exposure as the regular personnel.

If the engineer was required to work with equipment that incorporated high levels of heat they were in direct contact with the asbestos found in a friable state that would crumble easily making its particles airborne. But even for those engineers that only supervised the work process in an asbestos factory the situation was dire as asbestos fibers would constantly infest the atmosphere.
