Railroad Workers

Exposed to Asbestos at their workplace

Railroad workers were constantly exposed to the harm presented by asbestos exposure, especially the people performing repair and maintenance jobs on parts of the train that were insulated with asbestos containing products. If these materials needed to be cut, sanded or drilled into, asbestos dust would have been created releasing microscopic particles of asbestos into the near environment.

The inhalation of these particles leads to the development of diseases resulting in high fatality rates like mesothelioma, asbestos related lung cancer or serious respiratory conditions.
