Hey there anon -- I think you may find the answer you need by reading this this article. It seems that people who work in the "mining, quarrying, tunneling" fields, according to the NIH and those working with some materials related to construction may be at higher risk. This is another good link that includes photos. Thanks for writing and hope that helps.
