corrosion before its dangerous health effects were discovered. Individual asbestos fibers cannot be seen by the naked eye, which puts workers at an increased risk. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has regulations to protect workers from the hazards of asbestos.

Historically, automotive workers had a moderate to high risk of asbestos exposure. Their duties and job variance put some auto workers in greater danger of ingesting deadly asbestos fibers than others.

Learn more about the serious health risks that automotive workers may have due to asbestos exposure while on the job. Many employers put factory workers’ lives at risk through asbestos exposure. If you are a factory worker who developed mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation.

Learn more about the serious health risks that factory workers may have due to asbestos. Like construction workers, shipyard workers were at a high risk of occupational asbestos exposure because they had to remove, install, or repair asbestos-containing products on a daily basis.

Navy shipyards were particularly dangerous, as this branch of the U.S. Armed Forces used more asbestos-containing products than any other branch. These requirements are detailed in 29 CFR and specifically 29 CFR (f)(3) and Appendix F of the standard - Work Practices and Engineering Controls for Automotive Brake and Clutch Inspection, Disassembly, Repair and Assembly (Asbestos Safety and Health.
