Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

The people that worked as roofers were under the threat of inhaling high amounts of asbestos fibers due to the common use of asbestos in roofing materials. As a roofer you had to cut and saw asbestos containing shingles and tiles, a process that would generate large quantities of asbestos dust. If you had to repair or replace an old roof, damaged and deteriorated asbestos materials would have been ripped off and you would have found yourself breathing in an asbestos filled air.

Even the families of the roofers risked developing serious diseases like mesothelioma or lung cancer due to the asbestos fibers attached to their clothes and hair that were brought home daily. These asbestos related diseases are known for their long latency periods, which means that when the symptoms finally show up it is already too late for a treatment to work.
