Honeywell Heating

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Mark Honeywell founded the company in 1906 to make hot water heat generators. Within a couple of decades, the company had expanded to include defense and aerospace products. As it acquired more and more companies, Honeywell found itself liable for their asbestos cases as well as its own, such as with Bendix, a brake manufacturer, and NARCO, manufacturer of asbestos cement and derived products.

Former Honeywell Heating Employees Should Closely Monitor Their Health

Having operated for more than a century, Honeywell Heating was a company specializing in manufacturing heating systems, as well as defense and aerospace products. The employees who are at highest risk for developing a terrible disease today are those who spent extended periods of time working in close proximity to the asbestos dust generated by brake friction, such as installers and mechanics. HVAC mechanics in charge with repairing residential and commercial furnaces which contained NARCO’s bricks and cement are also susceptible to falling ill.

If you were a Honeywell Heating worker before the 1980s, chances are you were exposed to asbestos on the job, so it is crucial to keep a close eye on your health. Some of the most common symptoms of lung disease caused by asbestos exposure are chest pain, a lingering cough, fatigue, shortness of breath, and unexplained weight loss. Nevertheless, very few people notice these signs before their illness reaches advanced stages. To promote early diagnosis, we provide asbestos screenings free of charge to Honeywell Heating employees with a history of occupational asbestos exposure. For additional information, please contact us and our medical experts will promptly let you know whether your health should be a cause for concern.

Our Lawyers Also Provide Legal Assistance to Victims of Secondary Asbestos Exposure

Due to the microscopic size of fibers, asbestos can easily circulate though the environment. This, along with lack of industrial hygiene, is the reason why secondary asbestos exposure was so common during the last century. Since asbestos workers did not have to change their clothes at the end of the day, they would inevitably carry toxic fibers home, where their family members would unknowingly inhale or ingest them. As a result, approximately 10% of today’s asbestos victims came to struggle with a disease as a result of secondary exposure.
