Tile setters

Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

The tile setters risked exposure to asbestos by handling asbestos products and materials directly or being on a construction site where asbestos dust was produced by other workers in their proximity. Every time the worker cut the tiles, prepared the walls by sanding them or removing deteriorated materials, he risked inhaling the dangerous particles released from the asbestos dust.

Even cleaning the area entailed the fibers of asbestos becoming airborne and posing a threat to the worker’s health.

The diseases that develop from asbestos exposure usually have an extended period of latency – mesothelioma and asbestosis show symptoms after 10 to 40 years after the initial exposure.
