It might be surprising to learn that whether on the job or at home, individuals in Idaho are exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. Workers who are engaged in the state’s industries of agriculture, chemical plants, power plants, steel, and lumber are at significant risk of being seriously harmed by exposure to asbestos. Other workers, including those who are employed on cattle farms and even those who teach in elementary schools, can also end up being exposed to asbestos.Exposure by Idaho Residents to Asbestos
Unfortunately, there are a number of asbestos containing materials found at various job sites and residences throughout the state. Part of the reason why asbestos is found in so many buildings is that before the 1980s, asbestos was used in a large number of construction materials like floor tiles, insulation, and wall boards.
It is important to remember, however, that asbestos is not dangerous unless it is moved or disturbed in some way. Construction workers, for example, often disrupt asbestos through the course of their work, causing the tiny fibers to come loose and be inhaled by people in the vicinity. Often time, these people are not aware that they have been exposed to asbestos until years or even decades after the initial encounter, when a terminal diagnosis is made. Many cases of mesothelioma have been diagnosed in family members of the workers in direct contact with asbestos, who then carried it home on their work clothes.Our Attorneys Will Travel to You
