Automotive Workers

Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

Automotive assembly factories represented dangerous environments for the people working there, as a toxic mineral known under the name of asbestos was used in an extensive manner for manufacturing products required by the automotive industry.

Asbestos was mainly used in friction products and every time these would get grinded, asbestos particles would be released in the atmosphere through the dust produced by the workers. They were subjected to the exposure of asbestos not only from the automotive products but also from the machineries found in these plants that were insulated with it like turbines, pumps or boilers.

Due to the prolonged asbestos exposure the automotive workers went through, they are at risk of developing in their later years diseases related to this toxic mineral like lung cancer, asbestosis or mesothelioma. Unfortunately, the symptoms of these illnesses start showing up when the treatment can’t be effective anymore as the body is already weakened by age.
