Modern products that contain asbestos

Anyone can encounter asbestos dust and contract severe, life-threatening injuries and illnesses as a result of this contact. As such, you might want to familiarize yourself with the modern products that still incorporate asbestos. This way, you can stay safe when around these products and avoid the potential for contamination.

Below are some asbestos-containing products still in use today:

Automobile component - Certain car parts utilize asbestos. This is why those working in the car repair industry are particularly at risk of contracting diseases related to asbestos contamination. The most likely car parts to contain asbestos are clutches, gaskets and brake pads.

Insulation materials - Some construction and building workers are also likely to encounter various products that contain asbestos, particularly those who work with materials used to protect homes from heat and air conditioning losses.

Other construction materials - Additional construction materials that might contain asbestos include roof tiles, corrugated sheeting and prefab cement.

These asbestos-containing materials pose threats not only to construction workers, but also to DIY homeowners who like to maintain their own residences. They, too, could be at risk of exposure to asbestos from even casual contact with such materials.

Pennsylvania residents and workers should be on alert to avoid asbestos at all times. However, there is only so much that can be done to protect oneself. In some circumstances, asbestos exposure may happen due to the fault of a negligent business or individual. If you have contracted an asbestos-related illness on the job or due to someone else's fault, you may have the right to pursue financial compensation related to your symptoms.
