Weil-Mclain Co.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Weil-Mclain Co. was established in 1881, in Chicago. They are a manufacturer of hydronic comfort heating systems for residential, commercial and industrial use. With manufacturing facilities all throughout the US, they have become one of the leading boiler companies, constantly expanding. Because up until 1980, the use of asbestos in products that required resistance to high temperatures was very common, Weil-Mclain has chosen to incorporate it, exposing their employees to huge health risks.

Former Weil-Mclain Co. Employees Should Keep an Eye on Their Health

Asbestos is a naturally formed mineral that has heat-resistant properties. This particular quality, plus its durability has made it an attractive material for a various number of industries that have incorporated it in their products, up until 1980 when its use has been regulated. Regardless, during the manufacturing or maintenance process of products that contain it, small asbestos fibers get released into the air, contaminating it. Weil-Mclain is one of those companies that incorporated it, disregarding the health risks that they were putting their workers at.

If you are a former Weil-Mclain employee, you need to pay attention to your health. Asbestos fibers can get caught in the lungs and accumulate over time, thus leading to the possible development of serious lung disease. Our specialists are offering free screenings based on your latest x-rays, in order to determine whether or not you may be at risk.
