Rubber factory workers

Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

Rubber plants presented a serious level of exposure for its workers through the use of asbestos products on the building or production equipment. In these factories, asbestos was used in a variety of ways due to the wide range of products that contained this mineral.

Claim Evaluation

With the passage of time, the asbestos-containing materials and products would start to deteriorate and break down requiring the attention of the factory's workers. 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.
