Weapon manufacturers

Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

Before 1980, when the use of asbestos was properly regulated in the workplace, people who were holding down a job at weapon manufactures were moderately exposed to the carcinogenic mineral, as they would have to employ it in the production of weapons. One of our clients recalls polishing the weapons he had manufactured with asbestos, while the entire manufacturing facility was laden with asbestos in the form of construction products such as cement, floor and ceiling tiles, refractory materials and firebricks. For this reason, it is crucial that people who were weapon manufacturers during the last century to undergo periodical medical examination, as they are at considerable risk of developing a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure.

Claim Evaluation

Weapon manufacturers were exposed to asbestos on the job to a moderate extent. They would have to polish the weapons with asbestos, as the mineral is very durable and abrasive, and they would also have to wear aprons and gloves made with asbestos to protect themselves from extreme temperatures and fire. Furthermore, the manufacturing facilities they would perform their job in were built with asbestos construction products, which, when disturbed, would release toxic fibers in the air. Subsequently, workers would unknowingly inhale and ingest these carcinogenic fibers. This is why, as a former weapon manufacturer, it is important to undergo regular medical examination, as you have a significant risk of developing a serious disease, such as lung cancer, as a result of occupational asbestos exposure.
