Asbestos Products Manufacturers

Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

The main activity of the asbestos plant workers was processing the raw asbestos fibers into finished products that could have been distributed and sold. Working with raw asbestos raised exponentially the level of exposure for the people in this line of work.

The manufacturing process went through different stages, all equally dangerous for the people that used to work inside the plant. From their initial stage, the fiber bundles needed to be broken down into smaller ones and then get cleaned off of impurities through a process named carding, creating dangerous amounts of poisonous dust. The separated slivers were then spun into yarn that was later woven into cloth sizes. Ropes were formed from some of the woven cloth that was remaining.

In these plants, all of the workers were breathing in a contaminated atmosphere where microscopic particles of asbestos were being spread all around. The exposure didn’t stop there as asbestos dust was brought into their homes on their working clothes.

Like asbestos miners, the asbestos products manufacturers were required to handle raw asbestos directly which meant that they were subjected to dangerous levels of asbestos exposure. This led to high rates of mesothelioma and asbestosis appearance in former asbestos plant workers.

Diseases Contracted after Asbestos Exposure in Asbestos Products Manufacturers

The likelihood of asbestos product manufacturers to develop a life-threatening disease is tremendous, as they would handle raw asbestos on a regular basis, which would cause toxic fibers to become airborne. After asbestos fibers enter the body by inhalation or ingestion, they gradually produce inflammation and tissue scarring to the organ they reach which, in turn, may give way to a serious disease. Thereby, asbestos products manufacturers can experience symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath if they come to suffer from a respiratory disease caused by asbestos exposure.

How Can We Help Asbestos Products Manufacturers Who Were Exposed to Asbestos?

Many of the people that handled raw asbestos on a constant basis had fallen ill to diseases related to this toxic mineral. What makes matters worse is the prolonged incubation of illnesses like mesothelioma and asbestosis as their symptoms show up after 30 or 40 years after the initial exposure.
