Arnold Industries

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1968, the company specializes in manufacturing fasteners, mechanical components, and electronic hardware. It was initially headquartered in Morgan Hill, California, but since 2019, the business has been located in Stoughton, Massachusetts. Arnold Industries is part of the electronics and appliance stores industry. At first, it had only 14 employees, and it would generate $4.2 million in sales. Unfortunately, because it was active during the last century, the company exposed workers to asbestos, as the mineral was necessary for a wide range of purposes in the facilities of Arnold Industries. Today, people who have a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure can recover financial compensation from their former employer, which we encourage you to do if you are in this situation by giving our legal team a call.

Claim Evaluation

Arnold Industries employees exposed to asbestos

Asbestos was considered a perfect material to use in the manufacturing of electrical products such as electrical panels, circuit breakers, electrical wire and cable, motor control, and explosion-proof enclosures. Employees who manufactured these products were at high risk of asbestos exposure, as they were not given any protective equipment to wear on the job against inhaling and ingesting toxic fibers that were constantly released in the air. This was because asbestos corporations were striving to maintain the illusion that asbestos was safe to use and to be around. Consequently, when disturbing asbestos or asbestos materials to produce electrical products and mechanical components, the workers of Arnold Industries would breathe in and swallow a lot of asbestos fibers, which greatly endangered their health.

The following are the occupational groups Arnold Industries exposed to asbestos, directly or indirectly, until the 1980s, when the use of asbestos mostly ceased across the country:

When it comes to employees who were in charge of producing mechanical components, they were also greatly exposed to asbestos, as they had to insulate the gaskets, brakes, and clutches with asbestos since the mineral reduces friction, strengthens the components, enhances their durability, and increases their lifespan. Every time these workers disturbed asbestos to insulate components or to use it otherwise, they would inevitably breathe in and swallow toxic fibers that would accumulate in their bodies. Within 20 to 50 years, the unlucky ones develop a disease as a result of asbestos exposure, depending on how much they were exposed to asbestos and whether they had other risk factors in their lives.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Arnold Industries workers

Secondary asbestos exposure was sadly a common occurrence during the last century, as employees who had to handle the mineral on the job would often return home covered in toxic dust. Upon greeting the worker, their family members would unavoidably inhale some of the asbestos fibers, thereby exposing themselves. Furthermore, if their wives laundered their work clothes, they were additionally exposed to asbestos, as they would usually shake out the garments before washing them.

If you shared the same home as a family member employed at Arnold Industries during the last century, we advise you to keep a close eye on your health, as you are also at risk of developing the same harrowing diseases workers are, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. As for people who already have a diagnosis that is related to secondary asbestos exposure, you should reach out to our legal staff, as we have the necessary resources and experience to obtain compensation for you.
