Oil Refinery Workers

Our clients include oil refinery workers who were unknowingly exposed to asbestos and as a result, years or decades later have been diagnosed with several deadly forms of cancer and mesothelioma.

Asbestos Products at Oil Refineries

Oil refinery workers were exposed to numerous types of asbestos-containing products, such as:

  • Construction materials. Asbestos was commonly placed in various types of construction materials used at oil refineries.
  • Protective equipment. Oil refinery owners valued asbestos for many years due to the material’s ability to resist fire and high heat.
  • Refinery equipment. Asbestos was commonly placed in equipment located at refineries. This meant that maintenance workers were commonly exposed to asbestos when repairing damaged equipment.
  • Thermal insulation. Asbestos was primarily used for insulation to control the numerous fires that occur during the refining process.
