Asbestos Sites by State

Asbestos Jobsites by State

Have you or a loved one ever worked at a shipyard, a power plant, a construction site, or in a boiler room, or aboard a U.S. Navy ship? If so, you may have been exposed to harmful asbestos without even knowing it.

The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance has created a comprehensive database of asbestos jobsites in the United States and we are adding more all the time! Click on a state below to view a list of jobsites where asbestos exposure may have occurred. If your job site is not listed for some reason, it does not mean that you have not been exposed to asbestos.

Although asbestos use was highly concentrated in certain locations and types of industries throughout the U.S., including shipyards, manufacturing companies, industrial plants, and U.S. Navy ships, it was actually a very widespread problem across every state in the nation and at tens of thousands of locations. Tradesmen who worked at any of the jobsites that you’ll read about in this section may have been exposed to high levels of asbestos and, in turn, are at risk to develop serious medical conditions, including mesothelioma.

What You Will Find in our “Asbestos Sites by State” Directory

In order to help our visitors determine whether they were exposed to asbestos directly at a specific jobsite, we have developed this “Asbestos Sites by State” section. For each state we provide a brief historical overview of where asbestos use was most prevalent in that state as well as a listing of major cities where asbestos jobsites were located. For each major city you will then find a list of the specific companies and jobsites in that city where asbestos exposure occurred. For some of these companies and jobsites we have compiled more detailed information about them including company background and overview, the products responsible for asbestos exposure at that location and the occupations that were at the greatest risk.

Remember to check back often as this section will continue to expand and serve as one of the most comprehensive asbestos jobsite resources on the web.

Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act Takes One Step Closer to Giving EPA Power to Ban Asbestos

“One year ago today, Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL), along with three co-sponsors, introduced a bill to update the decades-old federal law that governs toxic chemicals – including asbestos. Just two days ago, that bill jumped over a major hurdle with the passage of an amendment that incorporates a number of changes suggested by the Senate. Now, it returns to the Senate for a final vote before, hopefully, being sent to President Obama to be signed into law.”
