Asbestos Exposure for Electricians

Because electricians often work in both the construction and remodeling businesses, they are at a greater risk for asbestos exposure than many other occupations. The use of asbestos was banned in 1979, but asbestos still exists in older homes and buildings. If electricians work on the wiring in homes or other buildings that were constructed prior to the 1980s, they may risk exposure to asbestos. When intact, asbestos is not harmful, but its fibers are often broken during reconstruction or remodeling projects, and these broken fibers can cause dangerous and deadly conditions such as mesothelioma.

If you are an electrician and suspect you have been exposed to asbestos fibers, it is important to seek legal and medical assistance as soon as you can. The experienced mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Hart are dedicated to helping our clients receive financial compensation for treatment costs. Contact us today at 800-781-3955.

Dangers for Electricians

Prior to the 1980s, asbestos was used as stand-alone insulation as well as for an insulating coating for a number of products, including electrical wiring and devices. Some of the likely objects that expose electricians to dangerous asbestos fibers include:

  • Conduit wiring and piping
  • Wires in older buildings
  • Insulation around generators and motors
  • Ceiling tiles

Unfortunately, many electricians have been exposed to asbestos and do not realize it. The signs of asbestos exposure typically do not appear until decades after the initial exposure, but asbestos poisoning can cause fatal conditions such as mesothelioma and lung cancer.
