Bechtel Corporation

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Bechtel Corporation is a construction, engineering and project management company, based in Reston, Virginia. Founded in 1898, it has now become one of the biggest construction companies in the US, with divisions as infrastructure, mining & metals, oil, gas, and chemicals. With major projects such as the Hoover Dam, the Boston Central Artery/Tunnel or the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, Bechtel Corporation has been a big name in the construction industry for over a century. As it was very common in the US at the time, they have used asbestos products in their construction projects, exposing numerous workers to the risk of developing asbestos-related lung diseases.

Former Bechtel Corporation Employees Need to Keep Their Health in Check

The era between the 20s and the 80s has been marked by heavy use of asbestos products in a various number of industries. The construction industry is one of them, as asbestos was a very useful component especially in cement making because of its strengthening qualities. Apart from it, it was also heavily used for insulation, roofing and flooring materials. Even though it’s a naturally occurring mineral when processed and disturbed it releases small fibers into the air, which if inhaled can lead to major health issues.
