Insulators

Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

As an insulator, you used to work in one of the most dangerous environments regarding asbestos exposure. Insulators worked directly with asbestos-containing products and risked inhaling asbestos fibers when wrapping materials were applied and by doing that the particles of this toxic mineral could have been disturbed, or when worn down and damaged, insulation required removal.

The second process was more dangerous due to the friable state the asbestos was found in, crumbling easier when the insulator touched the aged materials and continued to breathe in the asbestos dust-filled atmosphere.

The people that were unknowingly working in the dangerous environments that insulation projects entailed have fallen numerous times in the hands of diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis, diseases that are diagnosed in later years when their health can't be restored.

Diseases Contracted after Asbestos Exposure in Insulators

Since they would directly handle raw asbestos, insulators are today at high risk of developing a terrible disease. Insulation is a friable material, which means that it releases asbestos fibers in the air with the slightest disturbance. Therefore, a large number of people who would apply insulation during the last century are now struggling with the diseases below. According to a study, 20% of people who worked with asbestos before 1980 are suffering from awful diseases at the moment.
