Engineers are at risk of developing mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused from asbestos exposure that can take 20-50 years to develop. Asbestos was commonly used in construction products, electrical products, and nuclear reactors. Engineers commonly inhaled asbestos as they supervised these products being installed.
This website features extensive information on asbestos and can help inform former and current engineers of the dangers of asbestos and the steps involved if affected. Some great information can be found at https://www.asbestos.com/occupations/engineers/ .
The next CPGCE presentation will be:-
9th May, 2018 - 200 Years of Civil Engineering in Canada
Dr. Nigel Shrive, Professor of Civil Engineering, University of Calgary
