Case Study: A man worked for a manufacturing company when he was fifteen years old. Two years later, he took a job as an electrician's apprentice. The man worked there for the rest of his life. Part of his job included cutting sheets with a saw and drilling into the ACM. He had no idea how dangerous working with asbestos was, and he and his coworkers did not use masks or any other PPE. The man died of asbestos-related disease just before his retirement.

Key Takeaways: This man, like so many others in his industry, did not know the dangers of working with and around asbestos. Seemingly simple and harmless tasks cost the man his life. It is important for employees to understand the types of material they are working with on any job site. The proper PPE could have saved this man's life.
