Chemical Plant Workers And Asbestos Exposure

Mesothelioma In The Chemical And Petrochemical Industry

Asbestos has many ideal qualities that made it both a versatile ingredient in chemical compounds and a valuable material in manufacturing equipment. Unknown to the employees of chemical plants, the omnipresent substance was also a confirmed health hazard.

Countless American workers once employed by the major chemical companies were exposed to harmful levels of asbestos, and now, decades later, many are dead or dying from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer. The corporate honchos knew and the suppliers of raw asbestos and asbestos products knew.
