Former Burns and Roe Workers, at High Risk for Developing Serious Diseases as a Consequence of Asbestos Exposure
Unlike the majority of companies which knowingly endangered the lived of workers, Burns and Roe were not a manufacturer of asbestos products. Nonetheless, they would use numerous hazardous materials, such as asbestos spray and wiring insulation, to prevent the equipment they were employing from overheating, which subsequently led to thousands of workers developing awful diseases as a result of exposure. The occupational groups at the highest risk include plumbers, construction workers, pipe fitters, contractors, supervisors, as well as engineers and architects. As of 2000, more than 13,500 claims were filed by former employees injured by workplace asbestos exposure. Because the company was no longer able to pay out compensation, Burns and Roe was forced to seek bankruptcy protection and as a result, they set up a trust fund in 2009 from which victims of asbestos exposure can recover the money they are entitled to.
