Halliburton Company

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Halliburton was founded in 1919 in Duncan, Oklahoma, as an oil well-cementing business, and by 1922, the company cemented its 500thoil well. By the 1950s, Halliburton expanded its activity in Europe, and in 1986, it was conducting business on China’s mainland.

With the passing of time, Halliburton acquired different other companies that used asbestos in their products due to the heat-resistant characteristics this mineral possessed. Along with the people involved in their making, these products affected the lives of the people working in the oil-related industries.

Halliburton Company employees exposed to asbestos

As a worldwide leader in manufacturing products and providing services to the oil and gas industries, Halliburton Company is still in business today, operating in more than 70 countries. Ever since the beginning, the company has used asbestos in their products, which include compressors, locomotives, as well as drilling fluid. Over 58,000 people have worked at Halliburton Company until now, a significant portion of whom was subjected to occupational asbestos exposure. In addition to the people who participated in the manufacturing of their products, oil refinery workers are also at high risk for a wide range of diseases. From asbestosis and COPD to lung cancer and mesothelioma, asbestos exposure is responsible for harrowing illnesses. It can also cause other malignant diseases in the body, such as colorectal or gastrointestinal cancer.

The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred at Halliburton Company are industrial workers, construction workers, and remodelers. However, veterans may also have also been exposed to asbestos products manufactured by Halliburton Company, particularly those who served in the U.S. Navy. In addition to pumps, these were the most common asbestos products manufactured by Halliburton Company during the last century.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Halliburton Company workers

Completely disregarding safety measures, Halliburton Company executives did not provide workers with appropriate equipment to wear on the job, such as dust masks or respirators, which could have prevented the majority of them from developing terrible diseases several decades later. Between the 1930s and the 1970s, asbestos would also be advertised as non-toxic to humans, so people did not have a reason to believe the mineral represented a health threat. The family members of Halliburton Company employees were not concerned either when the person in question would return home covered in asbestos dust. However, asbestos is a carcinogen whose inhalation or ingestion can result in awful diseases such as lung cancer. By the end of the last century, millions of workers and family members were exposed to asbestos.
