A certain type of asbestos was used in electrical wiring, as it had the most unique characteristics regarding electrical insulation – Crocidolite or "blue asbestos".

For an electrician that had to work on a constant basis with contaminated wiring, the risks grew exponentially when they made contact with worn-out cables and wires, as this would usually mean that the asbestos was in a friable state. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself working in old buildings
  • You worked directly with asbestos insulated cables and wires
  • You had to work around contaminated electrical wiring
