Despite a large body of scientific research establishing the deadly effects of asbestos exposure, the substance still remains in a number of homes and workplaces in Colorado today. In the second half of the 20th century, while Colorado grew, asbestos was used by many of the state's primary industries including chemical production and machinery plants. As a result, numerous workers including boilermakers, electricians, miners, teachers, and anyone else who frequently visited older buildings are all at substantial risk of having been exposed to asbestos.

Power Plants in Colorado Known for Asbestos Exposure

Before the classification of asbestos as a cancer-causing substance, the material was used in numerous power plants because it is more heat resistant than many other materials. Some of the power plants in Colorado that are known to have exposed workers to asbestos include the following:

  • Arapahoe Power Plant
  • Cameo Power Plant
  • Cherokee Power Plant
  • Comanche Power Plant
  • Craig Power Plant
  • Fort St. Vrain Power Plant
  • Hayden Power Plant
  • Martin Drake Power Plant
  • Nucla Power Plant
  • Pawnee Power Plant
  • Rawhide Power Plant
  • Ray D. Nixon Power Plant
  • Valmont Power Plant
  • Zuni Station Power Plant.
Oil Refineries and Asbestos Exposure in Colorado

Due to its heat-resistant nature, asbestos was used for many years in the oil refining industry. Some of the oil refineries in Colorado that are known to have exposed workers to asbestos include:

  • Conoco
  • Ultramar Diamond
Exposure to Asbestos by Residents of Colorado

Asbestos containing material (ACM) can still be found in a number of homes and worksites throughout the country. Use of asbestos as insulation in houses was discontinued once it was discovered that asbestos exposure could lead to several forms of cancer including mesothelioma. The material, however, can still be found in numerous locations throughout Colorado because asbestos is not dangerous unless it is disturbed, at which point the material’s fibers come loose, which can lead to them becoming inhaled and lodged in the lungs of workers. To make matters worse, workers are often not aware that they have been exposed to asbestos immediately. Instead, nearly everyone who is harmed by asbestos become aware of it many years later when a cancer diagnosis is made.
