Steel Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Workers involved in metal refining operations, foundries and steels mills have a high risk of being exposed to asbestos.

In addition to the insulated pipelines, boilers and similar equipment that are common within these industries, workers in metal refineries, foundries and steel mills may have been exposed to the high temperature refractory linings of:

  • Furnaces
  • Smelters
  • Launders
  • Ladles

These items were frequently in need of replacement and repair and were commonly composed of asbestos-containing products. Additionally, asbestos gloves, leggings and aprons were worn by workers near molten metals and asbestos cloth and blankets were used to moderate the cooling of metal castings.
