Engineers are at Risk for the Potential Hazards Related to Asbestos
Note to Engineers: Read on for Potential Hazards Stemming from Asbestos Exposure
Potential Hazard Maintenance workers and engineers can be unknowingly exposed to asbestos from many possible areas and sources.
Engineers can be exposed while working in furnace rooms where boilers are insulated with asbestos, or when making repairs to old piping or doing minor renovations.
Significant asbestos exposures can occur when insulation in old buildings is removed during renovations.
Asbestos exposure is often associated with areas or items that might not be expected to contain asbestos. Maintenance personnel may be unaware and untrained to handle these hazards.
Asbestos is commonly found in old buildings, built in the 1940's and 1950's, and can be found in many items such as:
