Asbestos Exposure in Erie, PA

Located on the shores of Lake Erie in northwestern Pennsylvania, Erie is a city in and the seat of government for Erie County. Home to more than 100,000 residents, Erie is Pennsylvania's fourth largest city, the only lake port city, and the only significant city located on the Great Lakes. Known variously as the "Flagship City" and the "Gem City", Erie attracts millions of visitors annually to enjoy numerous outdoor activities. The area's largest attraction is Presque Isle State Park.

Founded in 1795, Erie emerged as a maritime center, then as an important railroad hub in the mid-19th century, and a center for iron and steel manufacturing by the late-19th century thriving well into the 20th century with heavy industry. Erie's importance gradually faded during the second half of the 20th Century as the age of lake trade, commercial fishing, and American manufacturing dominance declined. Today, Erie's manufacturing sector remains prominent in the local economy generating more than 25% of the jobs. Erie's largest employer is General Electric Transportation Systems, a manufacturer of locomotives. Ten percent of the USA's plastics are manufactured or finished in Erie-based plastics plants. Other mid-sized industries have emerged in recent years including healthcare, higher education, tourism, as well as biofuels and environmental research.

Erie’s sustained manufacturing and industrial history places the city in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers exposed to asbestos containing materials have the chance of developing an asbestos-related cancer.
