Electricians faced significant exposure to asbestos when cutting or drilling asbestos materials in order to carry out electrical installation work, e.g. drilling into asbestos board in walls or asbestos ceilings. Also, many old hot water tanks, old turbines and generators contained asbestos as well as circuit-breakers and switchgears.

Even when not handling or disturbing asbestos themselves, electricians frequently worked in the vicinity of other tradesmen using or disturbing asbestos materials.
