Claim Evaluation

Conner Steel Products employees exposed to asbestos

Regardless of what steel mill one would be employed at during the last century, they were unavoidably exposed to asbestos, which was usually the consequence of handling machinery, equipment, or materials in the process of manufacturing steel. Asbestos insulation was used abundantly in steel mills, as it would help prevent the occurrence of fires and explosions. It would be present in ovens, hot blast stoves, tanks, boilers, furnaces, rolling mills, molding boards, cranes, and steam pipes. Therefore, you can only imagine the health hazard existing in steel mills before 1980, as numerous workers had to disturb this machinery and components for various reasons, which would release toxic fibers that they would then inhale and ingest.

The following are the occupational groups that would regularly work with or encounter asbestos products on the job in the steel mills of Conner Steel Products:

What increased the seriousness of asbestos exposure was that steel mill workers would often have to wear protective equipment in which asbestos fibers were woven to ensure they would not suffer burns if they came in contact with hot machinery or equipment. They would have to wear gloves, face masks, and aprons, all of which contained asbestos fibers that were easily released in the atmosphere with use. Furthermore, employees would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when feeding vessels scrap metal by crane, when controlling machinery to melt the scrap metal, as well as when adding other metal to give it the necessary chemical composition.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Conner Steel Products workers

Regrettably, the family members of Conner Steel Products employees were quite vulnerable to secondary asbestos exposure. This is because the asbestos companies went to unimaginable lengths to cover up the real dangers of asbestos exposure during the last century, and for this reason, workers were not required to wear protective equipment against asbestos exposure on the job, and they were not required to change their work clothes when their shift ended either. Consequently, they would bring home asbestos fibers on the clothes, hair, shoes, and skin on a daily basis. Their wives would typically breathe in and swallow toxic fibers when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would be exposed to asbestos when greeting their fathers upon returning home.
