Sheet metal workers

Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

People working with sheet metal were required to spend the majority of their time on construction sites infested with asbestos due to its heavy use in manufacturing construction materials.

Claim Evaluation

Metal sheets needed to be installed by the workers and, in order to do that, they had to drill into asbestos-containing cement releasing millions of microscopic particles into the atmosphere. The structures, on which metal sheets were applied to, contained building materials contaminated with this toxic mineral as it was heavily used for its low costs and heat-resistant properties.

The exposure didn’t stop at the working site as asbestos dust was brought home on the clothes of the workers putting their families at risk of developing asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and other respiratory illnesses as well.
