Cleaver Brooks Company

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Cleaver-Brooks was founded in 1929 and has its headquarters in Thomasville, GA. They are a boiler room equipment manufacturer, who focused on energy-efficient and environmentally friendly designs. Despite this, they have used asbestos in their products as many other manufacturers did up until the 80s. Their use of asbestos may have put numerous workers at risk of developing asbestos-related lung diseases.

Workers Who Have Handled Asbestos Products May Be at Health Risk

Cleaver-Brooks Company manufactures products aimed at optimizing the total boiler exhaust system to maximize energy efficiency while minimizing emissions. Because these products are intended to withstand great heat, many of them were made using asbestos, up until the 80s when there have been laws introduced to regulate it. The workers' repeated exposure to it, might have raised their risk of developing asbestos-related lung diseases. The problem though isn’t the mineral itself that if left in its natural state has no effect on human health. When processed for use in these products, it not only affects workers who are involved in the manufacturing process but also individuals further working with them.

Inhaling asbestos fibers imposes a huge risk on human health because they get trapped inside the lungs and can lead to inflammations that later develop into serious diseases. If you have been exposed to asbestos, you need to check up on the state of your lungs. These diseases can take many years to develop and start showing signs.
