Railroad Workers at Risk for Mesothelioma

Railroad workers are at serious risk for developing mesothelioma due to exposure in the workplace. Railroad companies used asbestos insulation on mains, pipes, boilers, brakes, gaskets and in the electrical and heat insulation in the walls, ceiling, and flooring of railroad cars. Workers who installed, repaired, and worked around these products and materials are likely to have come into contact with asbestos fibers while on the job.

Not only were trains made with asbestos-laden materials, the tracks that they rode on used the substance in different ways up through the 1960s.
