Steam plant workers: you have a right to receive compensation for an asbestos injury.
Steam plant workers were exposed to asbestos through asbestos laced machinery and equipment.
Boilers, turbines, and generators lined with asbestos for protection from heat and fire are examples of asbestos-laced machinery.
For this reason, steam plant workers may be at risk to develop asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma, asbestosis and asbestos-related lung cancer.
The threat for exposure was particularly troubling where sections of steam piping lagged with asbestos insulation could be disturbed.
In addition, above-grade exterior walls of the steam plant and its buss house were coated with masonry paint, which contained asbestos.
Steam plant workers are among those who have a high risk for exposure to asbestos in their occupation.
Asbestos is highly resistant to thermal and chemical degradation, and for this reason, was highly useful in steam plants.
