Former Employees of Sid Harvey Industries Inc. May Need to Keep a Close Eye on Their Health
Many companies have chosen to use asbestos in their products up until 1980 when it was regulated. For HVAC systems, it was an important component because it could withstand very high temperatures, and it provided excellent insulation. By choosing to use it, Sid Harvey Industries has put its workers at huge health risks. When disturbed, asbestos releases microscopic fibers into the air that can be inhaled or ingested. These fibers get trapped inside the lungs and can lead to serious diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis.
