Did you know?
Steel Workers have reported lung diseases such as asbestosis, asbestos cancer and mesothelioma cancer link to years of exposure to asbestos.
Steel Workers at Risk
Asbestos has been used heavily in metal refining operations, steel mills, and foundries. Studies of Steel Mills have shown that wherever high heat or fire is a hazard, asbestos is present in one form or another. In fact, according to the Asbestos Resource Center, steel and iron workers are among the highest risk of asbestos exposure.
Steel Workers have been heavily exposed to asbestos. Steam pipes, boilers, high temperature refractory furnace linings, insulation steam pipes, boilers, smelters, and steel ovens were protected by asbestos. Asbestos blankets and cloths were used to regulate the rate of cooling of metal castings.
Steel Workers were also exposed by use of personal protective clothing such as aprons, leggings, and gloves. Steel Workers not only have been exposed to asbestos, but also have experienced high levels of exposure.
