There is no amount of asbestos inhalation that is considered to be safe.
Very small amounts of asbestos inhaled into the lungs can result in mesothelioma decades later. However, the risk of developing mesothelioma or other complications is thought to increase with the amount of asbestos that you breathe in.
Since you can’t go back and change what happened, since you are powerless to now insist on better safety provisions or to choose another profession, it is important to recognize that you are at risk of developing asbestos related diseases even if your exposure was limited.
What you do now can make a difference. Tell your doctor about your asbestos exposure and ask your doctor to share with you warning signs of asbestos diseases so that you can get a fast diagnosis and prompt treatment if you develop mesothelioma, asbestosis or any other asbestos related illness.
