Although there were many types of plaster used in many different industries, asbestos fibers were commonly mixed into the formula of decorative plaster. Chrysotile or ‘white asbestos’ and amphibole asbestos were the preferred types of this naturally occurring mineral to be included in the manufacturing process of plaster.

With the passing of time, plaster would usually get worn out presenting scratches and abrasions. Damaged asbestos plaster would have meant an immediate risk of exposure to asbestos for the workers, as the content of this construction material wasn’t found in an intact form anymore. You could have been exposed if:

  • You handled directly asbestos plaster
  • You found yourself on construction sites where asbestos plaster was used
  • You found yourself working in old structures
  • You performed demolition work
  • You did remodeling work in old buildings
