Dangers of Asbestos Dust
Asbestos was had many different applications in the railroad industry. It is an extremely durable material that was resistant to high heat and therefore used in railroad tracks, engines, brakes, and more. Overtime, as parts of the locomotives would wear down, asbestos particles would break free, leading to asbestos dust to become airborne.
Asbestos dust in the air was easy for those working around it to inhale and ingest. Once these particles found their way into the body, they would often become trapped, embedding deep into soft internal tissue.
If you worked closely with asbestos containing products you may have developed asbestosis or other asbestos related illnesses. It can take more than 20 years after exposure for someone to show symptoms or develop an asbestos related disease.
