Unfortunately, many people who live in Hawaii are exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. While some people are exposed to asbestos in their homes, others are exposed to asbestos while on the job.

Even officer workers and school teachers are at risk of being diagnosed with mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure.Exposure to Asbestos at Power Plants in Hawaii

As a result, asbestos can still be found in various pieces of heavy machinery including boilers, tanks, and turbines.Oil Refineries in Hawaii and the Risk of Asbestos
Much like power plants, oil refineries in Hawaii also utilized asbestos due to its heat-resistant properties. Today, oil refinery workers are still at risk of being diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Many workers in Hawaii’s maritime industry have been exposed to asbestos over the years because the material was once used as insulation in ships as well as in numerous pieces of machinery including boilers, gaskets, and bumps. One location in Hawaii where workers are known to have been exposed to asbestos is the Pearl Harbor Shipyard on the island of Oahu.The Risk of Exposure to Asbestos for Hawaii Residents
Asbestos-containing materials are encountered by many people on the islands of Hawaii on a daily basis. This is because asbestos was once used in many types of construction materials including insulation and floor tiles.
