Compensation Mesothelioma and its relation to Aeronautical Engineers-
First of all what is Compensation Mesothelioma? It is a type of Cancer created from Mesothelium. Mesothelium is a part of a tissue, usually a thin layer that helps to cover the internal parts and organs of the body. The very common area affected to all the humans is the lungs and chest wall particularly for the organ wall linings. They may also occur on the organs namely lungs, chest abdomen and heart. There are many symptoms for this and cannot be concluded in the earlier stages mostly as the symptoms come up very slowly. The main and the only reason for occurrence of this cancer is the exposure to asbestos.
Why is this Mesothelioma applied only to Aeronautical Engineers?
Aeronautical Engineers have their career in four departments or fields. They are
The Aeronautical Engineers who chose the Design field are mostly to design the internal parts and exterior parts of an air craft. They also need to model new innovative designs and give presentations involving all the advantages and disadvantages of the model. They also need to explain the amount of negative impact they have when compared to the advantages and the steps to deal with them.
The Aeronautical Engineers mostly chooses this course study because of its low work. They just need to maintain the Air plane. What you heard is right. The only work for the maintenance engineer is to properly check the working and function of the craft. They take responsibility for any failures of the plane. This involves precision and great accuracy.
The Aeronautical Engineers who chooses this manufacturing field must be very interested in manufacturing and also has interest in Thermal Engineering. Different materials and metals have different properties and different boiling, melting temperatures. They must make a note of all the metals regarding the manufacturing of air plane and they keep their full efforts in reducing the weight of the plane. There are many other key roles of manufacturing engineer.
Research Engineers are the people who took thesis and research in their core field of study. They are paid in low amounts unless for a minor or major invention. Research engineers make the heart of the Aeronautics and lead the way.
What people usually think by reading the above sections is the role of Maintenance Engineers is happy and try to become one of them if going for aeronautics. That is probably the wrong decision you have ever made. Maintenance Engineers have to work at retrofitting air planes. They have high exposure to Asbestos which causes Mesothelioma Cancer.
Manufacturers use Asbestos in the manufacturing of the air crafts as the weight of asbestos is very low when compared to all the available materials regarding all the perspectives.
The second reason is that Asbestos is a fire retardant. Any problem that arise due to Fire may have a diminished effect.
Any Engineer may complete his study life in 6 to 7 years including higher education. Undergraduate in four years and further graduation in other two years. But an Aeronautical engineer cannot have the harmful and dreadful causes of the exposure to asbestos. Compensations can be found in large amounts. This is just a safety measure for all the Aeronautical engineers.
Asbestos used in the air crafts are of two types.
1. Chrysotile or White Asbestos
Chrysotile Asbestos is a very soft material and not at all harmful to the human body. But the other asbestos, i.e. Amphibole Asbestos is more harmful which is directly linked to Asbestos to create Mesothelioma, a dreadful cancer. This cannot be detected easily. Even though this is found to be harmful, this is intensively used only due to its unique properties. The Mesothelioma must be treated only at the beginning stages of cancer. Once it is developed, there are no ways to cure this disease.
Mesothelioma can be trimmed in the diagnosis of radiation only. Preventive measures must be taken while working with asbestos.
