Did you work for an electricity company and develop an asbestos cancer? File a claim with our lawyers.
An electricity worker exposed to asbestos dust and fibers in the 1950s has died from mesothelioma cancer.
The man, who was 67, had been an employee at an electricity company, where he worked on plant and machinery after asbestos lagging had been stripped.
He wife recalls his saying that he was often present when the asbestos was removed and the atmosphere was "heavily contaminated with dust and fibers".
Sady, she says, he was not provided with a protective face mask and was not aware of any health dangers posed by asbestos. In fact, many employers failed to warn their workers of the hazards of working with asbestos, or to offer clothing that would mitigate the risk.
Electricity workers are among those who risk exposure to asbestos in their occupation.
This is because electric wiring insulation, electrical panel partitions and electrical cloth can all contain asbestos.
