High Risk Occupation: Unions

If you are a part of a union, you might already be aware of asbestos exposure on the job. Unions have been aware of occupational asbestos exposure at the workplace, and many have made significant efforts to keep their workers safe.

Unfortunately, union workers are still diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases. Workers, including insulators, pipefitters, boilermakers, laborers, auto mechanics, firefighters, roofers, steel workers, electricians, and more are at risk for developing fatal illnesses due to asbestos exposure, despite their Union status.
