Ingersoll-Rand is one of the leading manufacturing companies that provide industrial equipment like mining, drilling machinery, and power tools. Founded in 1905, its main divisions were: industrial technologies, climate control technologies, and security technologies. Today, their main focus is on mining and construction equipment as well as drilling and blasting procedures. Employees working at Ingersoll-Rand may have been exposed to asbestos while manufacturing pumps or compressors.
Former Ingersoll-Rand Employees Need to Pay More Attention to Their Health
Manufacturers up until the 1980s, often chose to use asbestos in their products because it was a cheap alternative that provided not only durability but also heat and fire protection. Ingersoll-Rand was one of the companies that exposed their workers to asbestos fibers, by integrating it in their products and by using equipment containing it. As they have failed in warning their employees of the risks coming with this type of exposure as well as failing to provide proper protection, former employees may now be at risk of developing serious diseases.
As asbestos-related diseases can take a long time to start showing signs, it’s extremely important to constantly check on your health. In an effort to promote early diagnosis, we offer screenings free of charge for former employees of Ingersoll-Rand. Our specialists will analyze your latest X-ray and establish if there are any concerning abnormalities. For any further questions, you might have regarding this matter, feel free to contact us.
Victims of Asbestos Exposure in the Workplace Can Receive Compensation
As early as the 1920s, studies have shown there is a link between asbestos exposure and serious diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis. Despite that, manufacturers still chose to work with it, exposing their employees to huge health risks. Ingersoll-Rand is one of the companies who disregarded the warnings about asbestos effects. As a result, many of their former workers have filed lawsuits against them in the last years, on account of their debilitating health state as a result of asbestos exposure. Employees at the biggest risk of developing serious diseases are those who have worked not only in the manufacturing process but also in maintenance.
