Reviewing BP Oil Workers’ Mesothelioma & Lung Cancer Claims

Work at oil refineries has always carried some inherent health and safety risks, which include physical harm such as burns and injury, as well as inhaling toxic fumes and asbestos. BP Oil plant workers at Toledo, Lima, Ohio facilities, and others around the country, were likely exposed to toxic materials like benzene and asbestos. 

Asbestos was long considered the most effective industrial insulator, and was commonly used in oil plants because of its resistibility to extreme heat. In some cases, BP Oil plant employers decided not to take steps to protect workers from the dangers of toxins. 

BP Oil Asbestos Exposure Cancer

Industry studies and health experts have said there is no safe level of asbestos exposure, and even a small amount of workplace exposure can lead to cancer or asbestosis. There is generally a direct link to asbestos with mesothelioma cases, with as many as 95 percent of documented diagnoses involving occupational exposure. 

Asbestos in oil plants was especially toxic when it was disturbed or deteriorating. BP Oil had a duty to provide employees with a safe working environment. Workers in Toledo and Lima, Ohio’s BP Oil plants who have been diagnosed with cancer may have claims against their former employers and may contact an asbestos lawyer to investigate.
