Steamfitters, Pipefitters, Plumbers

Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

Between the 1940's - 1980's steamfitters, pipefitters and plumbers worked frequently with asbestos products and were considered to be a high risk group for contracting an asbestos related illness after extended exposure. The products that steamfitters, pipefitters and plumbers worked with had to be cut or sanded down to meet size specifications for the projects they were handed.

By cutting for fitting, a great deal of dust was generated, meaning that the workers were at risk of inhaling the dangerous dust containing the asbestos fibers.

In these men and women, asbestos related cancer could have taken 10 years or more to manifest itself after the initial exposure whereas mesothelioma and asbestosis could take up to 30 or 40 years to begin showing signs and symptoms of disease.
