Before asbestos was banned in the 1970s, many jobs involved regularly coming into contact with parts or other materials that contained asbestos. Even after companies stopped using asbestos, many job sites still contained asbestos materials that could lead to serious and potentially deadly health problems.
Long-term or high-level exposure to asbestos can put workers at risk of developing several diseases, including mesothelioma cancer, asbestosis, and lung cancer.
If you or a loved one worked at one of the following professions that often involved exposure to asbestos, you may be eligible to receive a free health examination to determine if you are suffering from an asbestos-related disease.
