Carpenters encountered direct exposure to asbestos dust and fibres when cutting, sanding and drilling asbestos board used for soundproofing or thermal insulation or when cutting or disturbing existing structures containing asbestos, e.g. ceilings, floor tiles, insulated pipework.

Even if not handling asbestos material directly many carpenters worked in the vicinity of other trades who used or disturbed asbestos.
