Asbestos Containing Products at Power Plants

For many years, power plants used asbestos in a variety of ways. As a result, many power plant workers were exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. Subsequently, their loved ones were also exposed when they unknowingly carried asbestos fibers home on their clothing. Some of the most common ways in which asbestos is utilized in power plants include:

  • In boilers
  • In gaskets
  • As floor, ceiling, and wall panels
  • As pipe covering

Asbestos use was particularly common at electricity generating plants as well as power distribution centers. Workers at these locations are at an elevated risk of being diagnosed with mesothelioma as well as other asbestos-related conditions. It is important to understand that asbestos is most dangerous when workers are repairing or moving objects that contain the substance. Once asbestos is disturbed, its small fibers can end up in the air where they are then inhaled, causing several types of deadly diseases.

Michael Throneberry gave me a whole new outlook on attorneys'! A very caring person who was more concerned with my health than a case. Truly unexpected! He explained possible conditions in english and even found the right doctors in my area. Prepared me for the right questions to ask the doctors so that I can understand my illness better. A great person and a great human being! Thank you. Greg
