There are numerous ways in which individuals in California can be exposed to asbestos. Many cities along the Pacific coast in California relied on asbestos for many years as a source of insulation and building materials. As many buildings in the state, both commercial and residental, still contain asbestos in some form or another, there is still a risk that California residents might be exposed to it. Electricians and plumbers who perform work inside of older buildings are at substantial risk of being exposed to asbestos.Power Plants in California Known for Asbestos Exposure
Many power plants were constructed with asbestos to protect machinery, and the substance remains at some of these locations. Some of the power plants in California that are known to expose workers to asbestos include:
Because oil refineries are home to intensely high temperatures, asbestos was once a commonly used building material at these locations. Some of the oil refineries in California that are known for having exposed workers to asbestos include:
As previously mentioned, asbestos was commonly used by ship builders for many years. Unfortunately, a large number of old ships today still contain asbestos. As a remnant from the days when asbestos was commonly used, many older structures at shipyards still contain asbestos. Some of the shipyards in California that are known to have exposed workers to asbestos include:
Due to asbestos’ heat-resistant properties, the substance was once used by a large number of steel mills, iron mills, and other companies that used significant amounts of flame and heat. Some of the locations in California that are known to have exposed workers to asbestos include:
Before the dangers of asbestos were well known, asbestos was used as insulation in a number of pieces of equipment including furnaces and ovens because it helped to protect against fires. Some of the types of chemical plants in California where workers have been exposed to asbestos include:
Without their knowledge, many people in California live and work in buildings constructed using asbestos. It is important to note that while asbestos is still found in many older buildings, it is not dangerous until it is disturbed, at which point the fibers become airborn and can get lodged in a person’s lungs. Mesothelioma does not become apparent immediately after exposure to asbestos, however, and in many cases a person is not diagnosed until years or even decades later.Experienced Mesothelioma Attorneys
