The Centers for Disease Control report that from 1999 to 2015, 264 Arkansas residents died due to asbestos exposure. Sadly, a large number of Arkansas residents are exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. Arkansas workers who are engaged in manufacturing, power plants, higher education, mining, oil refineries, and the military are at substantial risk of being exposed to asbestos. This means that everyone from pipefitters and plumbers to schoolteachers are at risk of being diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Asbestos Exposure at Arkansas Power Plants

For many years, power plants used asbestos as insulation because of its heat-resistant qualities. Some of the power plants in Arkansas where individuals are known to have been exposed to asbestos include:

  • Arkansas Nuclear One
  • Carl S. Whillock Hydroelectric
  • Electric Cooperative of Arkansas
  • Flint Creek Power Plant
  • Independence Steam Electric Station
  • McLellan Generating Station
  • Thomas B Fitzhugh Generating Station
  • White Bluff Steam Electric Station,
Arkansas Oil Refineries and Asbestos Exposure

Although Arkansas only has a few oil refineries, asbestos was once commonly used in the industry due to its heat-resistant nature. Some of the oil refineries where workers are known to have been exposed to mesothelioma include Berry Petroleum, Cross Oil, the Helena Cotton Oil Company, Lion Oil, and Tri-State Refining Company.

Exposure to Asbestos by Arkansas Residents

Even though Arkansas has a low amount of naturally occurring asbestos, Arkansas residents are still exposed to the substance on a daily basis. This is because for many years, asbestos was used in the construction of a large number of buildings and facilities in the state. If asbestos is not disturbed, it does not cause any problems. If asbestos is disturbed, however, its fibers can become inhaled and end up lodged in the lungs, heart, or abdomen of workers and residents. Most victims are not aware that they are exposed to asbestos until years or decades later when they receive a cancer diagnosis.
