Asbestos Exposure in Saginaw, MI

Characterized as "the mature urban core of Saginaw County", the city of Saginaw serves as the county seat. Saginaw occupies 17.6 square miles in the Flint/Tri-Cities region of central Michigan along the Saginaw River and is home to an estimated population of 55,600. To Saginaw’s south are the major industrial cities of Ann Arbor and Detroit. To its north are Michigan's natural attractions of lakes, recreation areas and the Upper Peninsula.

The city of Saginaw was once a bustling lumber town and manufacturing center. During the 19th century, Saginaw was the site of numerous sawmills and served as a port for Great Lakes vessels. Throughout much of the 20th century, Saginaw's economy was dominated by manufacturing related to the automotive industry; most notably, manual transmission assemblies, steering gear boxes and power steering pumps. While manufacturing is still a strong element of Saginaw’s economy, efforts have been made to diversify its base. Other important industry sectors include healthcare, technology and agriculture. Some top employers in Saginaw and surrounding areas are Delphi Corporation, St. Mary’s Hospital, General Motors Corporation, Saginaw Community Hospital, and Dow Corning Corporation.

Saginaw’s history of manufacturing places it in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers exposed to asbestos-containing products may be at risk for developing mesothelioma, a potentially terminal cancer.
