Asbestos Gloves

In some lines of work protective gear was required to be worn and asbestos cloth was used in the making of it due to its heat resistant properties. As gloves made with asbestos cloth became worn, they released loose asbestos fibers into the work environment.

The majority of tough industries required safety clothing due to the harsh working conditions. A pair of gloves usually completed the required attire and if heat was involved in the daily activities, they had to be made of a fire-resistant material. Unfortunately, up until the 1980’s asbestos was added in their manufacturing process.

Wearing this asbestos-containing gear meant that the workers were subjected to asbestos exposure on a constant basis. The toxic fibers may not have been emitted as heavily in the beginning but as they became worn out, they presented a real danger. You could have been exposed if:

  • You wore contaminated gloves on a constant basis
  • You found yourself working in old factories or plants
  • You entered in contact with the clothes or the gear covered in asbestos dust
