Asbestos Job Sites by State
Mesothelioma is strongly linked to asbestos exposure. People who are diagnosed with mesothelioma frequently were exposed to asbestos in the workplace. Exposure could have occurred in a variety of job sites, including at industrial locations such as shipyards and factories, as well as more common locations such as in old buildings, houses, and schools. Typically, exposure to asbestos involves the disturbance of asbestos-containing materials by workers as they perform their routine work duties.
When asbestos-containing materials are handled, there is the potential that asbestos fibers will be released into the air and inhaled or ingested by the workers in the vicinity. Once inside the body, the fibers can cause damage that may ultimately evolve into mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis decades later.
