Westinghouse Electric Company

Westinghouse Electric was founded in 1886, being a direct rival to Edison General Electric Company. Westinghouse flourished, and by the 1910’s, it started to invest in wireless communication, more precisely, it took part in the start of the commercial radio. The company also became a leading contractor for the U.S. military, followed by an entrance in the field of robotics in the 1980’s. Until the 1970’s, as a worker in Westinghouse Electric’s factories, you were surrounded by asbestos as this dangerous mineral was used in manufacturing some of the company’s products.

Although the majority of people who suffer from asbestos-related diseases have been exposed in the workplace, secondary exposure is common as well. If you are diagnosed with a malignant or non-malignant disease and have a family member who worked at Westinghouse Electric, there is a high chance your illness is the result of secondary asbestos exposure. Because most companies did not require employees to wear protective equipment on the job, you could have easily inhaled fibers of asbestos which remained on your loved one’s clothes.
