There are several ways in which people may be exposed to asbestos. The most common is in the workplace, where millions of people are exposed each year. Occupational asbestos exposure is the primary cause of mesothelioma, an incurable and deadly form of cancer caused only by exposure to asbestos.
Occupations with the highest risk include:
There are other professions and industries where exposure to significant levels of asbestos are possible. Additionally, asbestos was used in many homes, commercial buildings, and government buildings, including schools.
If a building where asbestos was used is damaged or disturbed, people living or working in the building could be exposed. Generally, however, those deemed the highest risk from exposure to asbestos are those whose occupation puts them in regular contact with asbestos.
