Kaiser Aluminum

Workers exposed to asbestos

In 1946, Kaiser Aluminum was founded as an aluminum refining and product manufacturing company. With the passing of time, the company expanded its activity to mining and distributing aluminum, followed by the production of materials used in shipbuilding and construction. From the 1950s to the late 1970s, the company manufactured products containing asbestos mainly for the military and the construction industry, affecting veterans and tradesmen.

Asbestos Screening

Kaiser Aluminum employees exposed to asbestos

As one of the most infamous companies employing asbestos during the last century, Kaiser Aluminum would cater to the construction, aerospace, engineering, and automotive industries, as well as to the military. Considering this, it is important to note that veterans might have also been exposed to asbestos by working with their products. The conglomerate eventually came to operate 10 different facilities in the U.S. and one in Canada. Considering the outstanding success Kaiser Aluminum was enjoying, it is perhaps not surprising that, after being exposed to asbestos daily for years in a row, thousands of former workers have recently come to struggle with terrible diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. People who were employed at the company between 1959 and 1977 are at the highest risk in this respect.

The occupations at highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred either by working at Kaiser Aluminum or working with their products are:

Considering the fact that asbestos-related diseases may take a long time to develop, it's extremely important that anyone who has a history of asbestos exposure regularly monitor their health. In the interest of promoting the importance of early diagnosis, we are offering screenings free of charge for Kaiser Aluminum employees.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Kaiser Aluminum workers


Because asbestos companies were severely lacking when it came to industrial hygiene and safety, secondary exposure would often take place in the homes of employees. As workers did not have to change or shower at the end of the day, their family members would unknowingly inhale toxic fibers from their clothes, which were usually laden with asbestos dust. While not everyone who had undergone secondary asbestos exposure developed a disease, numerous people did and new cases still emerge annually throughout the U.S. Regardless of the route of exposure, asbestos is highly dangerous to human health. Once fibers reach the inside of the body, they gradually cause inflammation and scarring to the organ they attach themselves to, which may eventually result in a disease.

Have you shared the same house with a Kaiser Aluminum worker and are now struggling with a disease such as asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, or lung cancer? If you suspect secondary asbestos exposure is at fault for your illness, do not hesitate to contact our experienced attorneys, who will promptly evaluate your case and help you recover the compensation you deserve. Victims of secondary exposure can also claim money for their injury from the asbestos trust fund set up by the company. For additional information, please feel free to give us a call and we will gladly answer all your questions.
