Oil rig & refinery workers

Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

The workers in this line of business used to work under a constant threat from asbestos exposure as the working process implied the use of extreme heat. Due to these conditions asbestos insulation and asbestos made parts were used to prevent the danger of a fire starting on the working sites but brought in the lives of the workers the danger of breathing constantly in an asbestos-filled atmosphere.

Being around the asbestos insulated machinery and their asbestos-containing parts, the people working in the oil rigs and refineries were always in the presence of friable asbestos, which means that its particles became airborne more easily during repairing and maintenance work. From sanding newly installed parts, removing worn-out ones and scrubbing the inside of the furnaces, inhalation of asbestos fibers happened on a frequent basis.
