Asbestos acoustical panels

Acoustical panels usually need to be moved around for the worker to access the wall behind them. When this happens, they release poisonous microscopic fibers into the environment. Due to the passing of time, they can easily start to crumble, leading to the same result.

The manufacturers of acoustical panels started to incorporate asbestos in the 1920’s as it was believed that adding this mineral would make the product stronger and heat-resistant.

It was common for maintenance workers to be exposed to the dangers of asbestos acoustical panels if they worked in schools or churches, especially in ones that hadn’t been through recent renovations. Anytime old panels were being moved around, toxic particles were spread around the workers. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself working in old churches or schools
  • You worked directly with asbestos acoustical panels
  • You helped remove old acoustical panels
  • In order to perform electrical work, you had to move around old acoustical panels
