Republic Steel Asbestos Exposure
Steel plants presented health risks to all workers. Toxic exposure may lead to severe health risks in the future. Republic-LTV Steel had large Ohio plant operations in the following cities:
- Newton Falls, Ohio
- Massillon, Ohio
- Warren, Ohio
- Canton, Ohio
- Niles, Ohio
- Lorain, Ohio
Occupational Asbestos Exposure
Most jobs in the metal works industry regularly faced the hazards of asbestos exposure. The types of steel plant positions at Lorain, Niles, Warren, Canton, Massillon and Newton Falls plants most commonly associated with exposure include:
- Pipefitter & Plumber
- Maintenance Crews
Republic Steel Asbestos Lawsuits
The American courts have recently held steel plants responsible for maintaining a safe work environment for workers. When steel companies have failed to meet basic safety responsibilities, they should compensate the victims of their negligent practice.
In April 2014, Republic-LTV Steel agreed to pay a $2.4 million fine to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), agreeing to settle alleged “health and safety violations” at three separate Ohio facilities, including Canton, Lorain and Massillon. The OSHA said they found over 100 violations of health and safety at the facilities, demonstrating a history of placing employees at risk.
The Lyon Firm aggressively, professionally, and passionately advocates for injured individuals and families against companies due to asbestos exposure.
