Power plant workers

Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

As a power plant worker, you interacted on a daily basis with equipment that was made with asbestos materials and machinery insulated with products contaminated with this naturally occurring toxic mineral.

The most exposed people were the ones working in maintenance as they had to cut through asbestos-containing insulation to remove it or to apply new insulation to machinery producing heat. Also, gaskets needed to be ground as they were fitted. All these activities meant that the atmosphere was continuously contaminated with microscopic asbestos particles that could have been easily inhaled by everyone inside the plant.

For the workers of a power plant, asbestos exposure proved to be one of the highest risks they could have been subjected to at their workplace. Inhaling asbestos fibers for a prolonged period of time usually leads to developing life-threatening diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.

How can we help power plant workers who were exposed to asbestos?

Diseases like mesothelioma or asbestosis are directly related to the inhalation of asbestos fibers by people being around materials or products contaminated with this poisonous mineral. Due to the prolonged incubation of asbestos-related illnesses (up to 30 or even 40 years) it is necessary to get tested as early as possible.

Contact us in order to get screened for the presence of asbestos fibers in your lungs. If your health was indeed affected by the asbestos exposure from your workplace, we will make sure to gather all the information necessary to file claims with the asbestos trust funds available, so you and your family receive the compensations that will cover the treatment costs.
