Asbestos is still used in certain industries and workplaces, despite the known health hazards associated with its use. Workers in shipbuilding, automotive, and industrial settings are particularly at risk of exposure to asbestos fibers. To protect workers from the dangers of asbestos, it is essential to follow proper safety protocols and regulations and to phase out the use of asbestos in these industries as soon as possible.

An estimated 1.3 million employees in construction and general industry face significant asbestos exposure on the job. Heaviest exposures occur in the construction industry, particularly during the removal of asbestos during renovation or demolition. Employees are also likely to be exposed during the manufacture of asbestos products (such as textiles, friction products, insulation, and other building materials) and during automotive brake and clutch repair work.
