Mesothelioma Help Center - Oil Refinery Workers

Did You Know?

During the 20th century, some 30 million tons of asbestos were used in industrial sites, homes, schools, shipyards and commercial buildings in the U.S.

Oil Refinery workers across the Unites States were exposed to asbestos and many still continue to develop asbestos and mesothelioma cancer.

One of the most dangerous jobs was that of the Oil Refinery worker. Oil refinery workers worked around equipment that contained asbestos, such as heat exchangers, ovens, driers, furnaces, and oil pumps. Asbestos was ideal for use in oil refineries because of its ability to resist corrosion and high temperatures.

Asbestos Exposure is Responsible for 90,000 Deaths Annually

Medical studies have shown that oil refinery workers with 20 or more years of experience developed asbestos related lung disease or lung cancer.

Oil Refinery workers run an increased risk of developing mesothelioma or other asbestos-related illnesses.

Asbestos Exposure in Oil Refineries

Asbestos was used in many products that were made for protection from heat and flame. This included actual clothing, such as gloves, to stuffing asbestos insulation into electrical conduit, to using asbestos to make fire proof cloth for use in power plants or petroleum refineries.

Asbestos also has excellent insulation and noise deadening qualities. This meant that asbestos was used in many construction products, including floor and ceiling tiles and wall board. Any home built before 1978 probably contains asbestos somewhere.

Asbestos exposure occurs when the asbestos that is in the products becomes damaged. Once damaged, the asbestos fibers are released into the air. The fibers are microscopic, smaller even than a grain of pollen, and invisible to the naked eye. The asbestos fibers, if inhaled or ingested, can become lodged into the body where it can create severe medical problems.
