Chemical Plant Workers

Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

The people working at chemical plants performed different activities surrounding the chemical manufacturing of products that were later used in a wide range of industries. Whether it meant distributing materials, dumping ingredients or operating machineries, the plant workers could have been subjected unknowingly to asbestos exposure.

Because of its chemical-resistant properties, asbestos was heavily used in the chemical industry as a key ingredient for some of the products manufactured. As asbestos was prepared to be included in mixtures for molding compounds or insulation sprays, microscopic particles of this poisonous mineral were released into the environment where people would unknowingly inhale them.

The asbestos exposure would not come only from the manufacturing process but also from its use as insulation on heat producing machineries where it would quickly become friable or from the protective gear made from asbestos cloth.

The continuous exposure to asbestos for the people working at chemical plants would often result in life-threatening diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis. When diagnosed, in later years, the treatment options are very limited.
