Asbestos Exposure in Salt Lake City, UT

Salt Lake City, Utah is the most populous city in the state and lies surrounded by the Great Salt Lake to the northwest, and the steep Wasatch and Oquirrh mountain ranges on the eastern and western borders. The area was inhabited by the Shoshone, Ute, and Paiute people before being settled in 1847 by Brigham Young and his Mormon followers. The largest employers located in Salt Lake City are the University of Utah, Pacificorp, and Intermountain Health Care.

Construction of the first transcontinental railroad and the subsequent mining booms brought early economic growth to Salt Lake City. The city was nicknamed the “Crossroads of the West” for its role as the geographic and trade center of the western United States. Mining and smelting became Salt Lake City’s top sources of income, with companies such as Geneva Steel, Garfield Smelter, Newhouse Mines and Smelters, and United States Smelting Company leading the way. Near the turn of the century, gold prospectors discovered oil in Salt Lake City, giving birth to the community’s petroleum industry. Utah Oil Refining Company was one of the first petroleum-related organizations operating in Salt Lake City and in following years, American Oil Company, Standard Oil of California, BP Amoco Utah, and Chevron Utah opened facilities in the city. The modern economy of Salt Lake City is now comprised of government, trade, transportation, utilities, and business services. The city has also developed into a strong outdoor recreation tourist industry based primarily in skiing, and was host to the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Asbestos containing products were commonly used in the industrial, manufacturing, and construction settings such as those found in Salt Lake City over the years. Individuals exposed to asbestos may be at risk to develop mesothelioma, an asbestos related cancer. You should know that asbestos law firms represent people from Salt Lake City who were exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
