As maintenance work was conducted by these people through cutting, sawing and removing, asbestos fibers would have been released into the environment.

By inhaling the poisonous fibers over a prolonged period of time, the workers of a rubber factory risked developing a life-threatening illness related to asbestos, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer.

Diseases Contracted after Asbestos Exposure in Rubber Factory Workers

Similarly to power plants, rubber factories require solid insulation in order to prevent a potential fire from occurring. In the past, insulation was manufactured with heavy amounts of asbestos, which put the lives of rubber factory workers at great risk. The older the insulation gets, the higher the risk of asbestos fibers coming off it. Consequently, workers could breathe in or swallow a considerable amount of dangerous fibers on the job before 1980. Today, numerous former rubber factory workers struggle with terrible diseases as a consequence of past occupational asbestos exposure.
