We've done the research on these locations: invoices, employee rolls, blueprints and photographs are some of the documentation our asbestos attorneys have culled from decades of research. Let our experience work for you; contact us today.

Asbestos Exposure: Safety, Levels and Risk of Injury

There is no known safe level of asbestos exposure, but greater exposure—both in duration and amounts—has been linked with greater risk of developing asbestos-related disease. Government agencies use "proportionate mortality ratio" or PMR to measure the relative risk of asbestos disease in various industries. PMR compares the overall death rates of a specific group to deaths within that group caused by a specific disease or injury. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), show a significant proportionate mortality ratio (PMR) with respect to mesothelioma in industries such as:

In addition to these industries, occupations that reveal a significant PMR include plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters; mechanical engineers; electricians; and elementary school teachers. Asbestos also puts these industries and occupations at increased risk for asbestosis, lung cancer, colon cancer, and throat cancer.
