Leslie Controls

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Leslie Controls was initially set up at the beginning of the 20th century by a Canadian manufacturer of steam pressure valves and regulators and later expanded to produce air horns, industrial water heaters, and control systems and regulators. It was sued for workers affected by the asbestos used in its products and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2010.

Leslie Controls employees exposed to asbestos

In business since the beginning of the last century, Leslie Controls specializes in the manufacturing of various products, including industrial water heaters and control systems, insulation, steam pressure valves, pipes, as well as regulators. Similar to dozens of other companies, it also made use of tremendous amounts of asbestos. In addition to the people who partook in the manufacturing process, Navy veterans are also at significant risk for developing a serious disease, particularly those who were involved in the maintenance of ships and those who spent a lot of time in the engine, boiler, or pump room. Furthermore, individuals responsible for the maintenance of chemical plants, oil refineries, power plants, gas refineries, and water plants might have come in contact with Leslie Controls products, too.

The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred at Leslie Controls Workers are factory workers and maintenance workers. However, veterans may also have been exposed to asbestos products manufactured by Leslie Controls Workers, particularly those who served in the U.S. Navy as the majority of ships were constructed using asbestos products. In addition to cement, these were the most common asbestos products manufactured by Leslie Controls Workers during the last century.

Superior legal assistance for the family members of Leslie Controls workers injured by secondary asbestos exposure


During the last century, asbestos would not represent a menace only to workers who came in contact with it, but also to their family members. When secondary exposure took place, their dear ones would unknowingly breathe in or swallow toxic fibers, which subsequently increased their risk of developing a terrible disease. The diseases asbestos exposure regardless of the circumstances under which it occurs can cause, mostly affect the lungs and include asbestosis, lung cancer, COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, as well as mesothelioma, a very aggressive cancer which grows on the outer lining of the organs. The carelessness of asbestos companies was the primary catalyst for secondary asbestos exposure, as they would not ask workers to change their clothes before returning home. Nowadays, approximately 10% of people who struggle with asbestos-related diseases are victims of secondary exposure, 8% of whom are women.
