How do you know if you've been exposed to asbestos?

Knowing whether you’ve been exposed to asbestos can be key to taking appropriate preventative steps, including getting medical checkups and being vigilant for symptoms of disease. So how do you know? Since asbestos absorbed by the body has no discernable effect for years or decades, the most reliable way to gauge exposure levels is through your experience living and working around the substance.

Living or working in a house with asbestos insulation is a form of exposure we’ve all experienced at some point. But the actual exposure levels from this are typically too low to be dangerous. Because asbestos typically must be cut, shredded or damaged for its fibers to be released into the air and inhaled, if you live in a house with intact asbestos insulation, you’re likely fine.

How do you know if you've been exposed to asbestos?

On-the-job exposure is by far the most common way people contract asbestos-related diseases. These jobs can include working in a factory that made asbestos insulation or other products such as appliances, car parts or ducts containing the substance. If the exposure occurred before asbestos was recognized as toxic and safety standards were put into effect, the results could be even worse. 

Working in construction, demolishing old buildings, and being a rescue worker that comes in range of buildings damaged by fire or other disaster, are other sources of contamination, as is having served on a Navy ship, since these ships were filled with such extreme amounts of asbestos to protect against heat and fire. Finally, anyone who lived with a person who worked with asbestos could have been exposed through fibers on their clothing.

How do you know if you've been exposed to asbestos?

There’s no way to text your exposure levels, so for now, your employment and life history are your best guide to whether you’re at risk of asbestos-related diseases.
