In the early 1980s US Auto and Truck OEMs were banned from producing brake pads and brake linings because of the extreme health hazard to workers. Unfortunately even though the asbestos laced brakes had been banned, mechanics still worked on the older cars and trucks with brakes containing asbestos well into the 90s.
Mechanics and break technicians are at particularly high risk for mesothelioma because of the intimate and unprotected exposure while working on automobiles or trucks.
