Statistics reveal that Florida has the second highest number of asbestos-related deaths in the United States. Whether at home or on job sites, a large number of individuals in Florida are exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. Some of the workers who are at greatest risk of asbestos exposure include pipefitters, plumbers, and steamfitters, but all workers including school teachers and administrative assistants are at risk of being diagnosed with mesothelioma.Power Plants in Florida Known for Asbestos Exposure
One of the main reasons why asbestos was particularly attractive industrial material for many years was its ability resisting high heat and fire. There are still many power plants in Florida where workers are at risk of asbestos exposure, including:
In addition to power plants, many other industries also relied on asbestos due to its heat-resistant properties prior to the release of reports that asbestos exposure results in mesothelioma. Some of the industrial workplaces that are known to have used asbestos include the following:
Many people are aware that for years, the shipbuilding industry as well as shipyards used asbestos in a variety of ways. In addition to being used inside of boats, asbestos was also used to reduce the risk of fires in several pieces of heavy machinery including turbines and pumps. Some of the shipyards in Florida where workers might have been exposed to asbestos include the following:
Many industries that frequently rely on electricity, heat, and flames to complete work processes once relied heavily on asbestos due to its capabilities as an insulator. One of the mills where workers were previously exposed to asbestos is Ameristeel.Asbestos Exposure at Chemical Plants in Florida
The chemical manufacturing industry is another type of industry that relied on the heat-resistant nature of asbestos for many years and as a result exposed many workers to the dangers of mesothelioma. Some of the chemical plants located in Florida include Jacksonville Chemical Plant and Petro Chemical Products.Asbestos Exposure and the Florida Space Coast
With a well-known and impressive aeronautical history, the Florida Space Coast area is home to Cape Canaveral and marks the site where the National Aeronautics and Space Administration launches space flights. Unfortunately, even NASA and other branches of the federal government uses asbestos in its buildings as well as in various space modules.The Risk of Exposure to Asbestos for Florida Residents
Asbestos containing materials were used to construct many of Florida’s public buildings and homes, which is why many of Florida’s residents are still exposed on a daily basis. Asbestos remains in the insulation, tiles, and wall boards of many houses and commercial buildings throughout the state. Some examples of buildings where individuals in Florida are known to have been exposed to asbestos include:
It is important to note that even though asbestos is contained in a number of older buildings throughout the state of Florida, asbestos is not dangerous unless it is moved or disrupted in some way. Once asbestos is disturbed, its fibers come loose and become inhaled by workers and then lodged in their lungs.Speak With an Experienced and Compassionate Mesothelioma Lawyer
