Occupations with a higher than normal likelihood to be exposed to asbestos include plumbers, pipefitters, boilermakers, steamfitters, electricians, mechanics and elementary school teacher. Jobsites where there is a likelihood of asbestos exposure in Arkansas include pulp mills, power plants and oil refineries.

Exposure to Asbestos Containing Materials in Arkansas
Individuals in Arkansas are primarily exposed to asbestos at their workplace or at home while working with asbestos containing material (ACM). ACMs, for example, were used in the construction industry and a lot of construction materials in buildings and homes. ACM for construction material included wall board, insulation, ceiling and floor tiles to name a few. The problem arises during the renovation of older building and homes and the proper safety precautions are not in place to remove the ACMs.
The asbestos at the jobsite or contained in materials is most dangerous when it is disturbed or damaged because it can become airborne and when inhaled can attach to the mesothelial lining of the lung. This exposure can result in mesothelioma, the deadly form of cancer that can affect the lining of the lungs or abdomen or the heart.
