Plumbers and Asbestos

Asbestos is a dangerous substance that was legally used in many construction products until the late 1970s. Although its use in the United States was banned in 1979, thousands of construction workers were exposed to asbestos’ hazardous fibers. Homes and other buildings that were constructed prior to the 1980s are at risk for containing asbestos, so any plumbers who worked on the piping in those buildings are also at risk for previous exposure to asbestos.

If you worked as a plumber in residential or commercial buildings before the 1980s, you may have been exposed to asbestos and face dangerous and even deadly health conditions.

Signs of Asbestos Exposure

Because plumbers are often deconstructing and reconstructing piping in homes and commercial buildings, they may have been even more at risk for asbestos exposure than other construction workers. When plumbers destroy and reinstall products, asbestos fibers can be released, and it is these fibers that can cause deadly lung cancer and mesothelioma. Signs of asbestos exposure often do not appear until decades after the initial exposure, but include:

  • Persistent difficulty breathing
  • Wheezing/severe coughing
  • Extreme chest pain
  • Coughing up blood

If you worked as a plumber and notice these signs, or any other suspicious conditions, you may have been exposed to asbestos and should take immediate action.
