Asbestos in the Metal Works Industry

As researchers and scientists learn more about the chemical makeup of asbestos, they discover more locations and products that might contain the dangerous substance. Although asbestos was once praised for its durability and fire-resistant qualities, the material has since been found to be incredibly hazardous to human health. More specifically, the material has been directly linked to the development of a lung cancer known as mesothelioma.

Individuals employed in the metal works industry have been exposed to asbestos through their close contact with insulation, hot water pipes, sheet metal, brakes, clutches, and gaskets, among other products containing asbestos. Other workers who are at high risk of developing mesothelioma include:

  • Welders
  • Railroad workers
  • Sheet metal workers
  • Machinists
  • Steel yard workers
  • Miners

The consequences of asbestos exposure are devastating. Mesothelioma takes decades to fully develop, making it difficult to diagnose and treat until the later stages of life. Workers from the metal works industry, particularly those that worked in the industry from the 1940s to the 1970s, should visit a doctor to be tested for mesothelioma.

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma due to your years as a worker in the metal works industry, contact a mesothelioma lawyer right away. A skilled attorney will be able to assist you as you take legal action against those responsible for your asbestos exposure.
