Important farmer resources (asbestos):

1. https://www.asbestos.com/occupations/farmers/

Agricultural workers and farmers work on farms to produce crops, livestock and dairy products. Farmers are at risk of exposure to asbestos through soil, vermiculite and products related to farming equipment and machinery. Asbestos.com organisation provides free informational books, packets and a Patient Advocacy program that works 1-on-1 with individuals to help them find local doctors, treatment centers and support groups.

 

How Agricultural Workers Are Exposed to Asbestos

  • While the work that farmers do today is different from the work performed during the height of asbestos use in the mid-20th century, asbestos exposure remains a risk to farm workers.

  • Much of the equipment and machinery used on farms is known to contain asbestos products. Older farm buildings — including farmhouses, barns, silos, pens and sheds — are highly likely to contain asbestos construction materials. Asbestos cement pipes were commonly used as field drains on farmlands. Repair and maintenance of equipment, machinery and farm structures could expose farmers to asbestos.

  • Farmers may also be exposed to asbestos in contaminated vermiculite products or contaminated soil in areas of naturally occurring asbestos. Animal husbandry, digging up asbestos-laden soil, crop planting and maintenance with asbestos-contaminated vermiculite are other sources of exposure.

  • Newer sources of asbestos exposure on farms may come from machinery parts, including aftermarket brakes, brake linings, other vehicle friction materials and gaskets. Farming remains among the jobs that encounter asbestos frequently.
