Atlantic Richfield Company

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO) has been founded in 1966 and operated as an oil and gas extraction company with over 1.300 refineries in the US, and operations in Indonesia, the North Sea, the South China Sea, and Mexico. Between 1970-1980, ARCO was one of the biggest oil companies in the world. Since petroleum is highly flammable, fireproof materials containing asbestos were used in refinery sites. Former employees of Atlantic Richfield Company may have cause for concern regarding asbestos-related lung diseases.

If You Worked at Atlantic Richfield Company You Need to Regularly Check on Your Health

Asbestos products were heavily used in the oil industry until the 80s, for its abilities to withstand high temperatures and for the fireproofing and durability qualities it possessed. It was usually found in gaskets used to seal pipes or other pieces of machinery, fireproof equipment and other construction equipment. When gaskets are disrupted or removed for repairs, they can release small asbestos fibers into the air, thus putting the workers at risk of developing lung diseases.

Although the manufacturing of asbestos products has stopped in the 80s, workers are still at risk if they are working with old pipes or machinery. Employees that have been working during the asbestos use years, need to keep a close eye on their health, as the exposure to it can lead to serious diseases. Our specialists offer free screenings based on your latest X-rays. Upon examination, they will establish if you have cause for concern.
