Asbestos use at Steel Mills

Some of the equipment and structures at steel mills that contain asbestos include the following:

  • Construction materials. Asbestos-containing materials are used in numerous components that make up steel mills including ceiling tiles and wallboards. Workers who were tasked with performing repairs at steel mills are at elevated risk of being exposed to asbestos.
  • Insulation. Asbestos was used as insulation in numerous types of equipment and machinery found at steel mills including furnaces, molding boards, and tanks.
  • Protective Clothing. For many years, asbestos was placed in numerous types of protective gear worn by steel mill workers including aprons, coveralls, and facemasks. Workers who relied on this equipment to keep them safe now face an increased risk of being diagnosed with mesothelioma.

It is important to understand that it can take between 20 and 50 years for mesothelioma to develop after a person is exposed to asbestos. Most steel workers who are diagnosed with mesothelioma are between the ages of 50 and 70.

Michael Throneberry gave me a whole new outlook on attorneys'! A very caring person who was more concerned with my health than a case. Truly unexpected! He explained possible conditions in english and even found the right doctors in my area. Prepared me for the right questions to ask the doctors so that I can understand my illness better. A great person and a great human being! Thank you. Greg
