Asbestos Exposure in Alaska

Alaska is home to several industries that use machinery at high levels of heat. Previous to the 1980’s, asbestos was widely used in industrial plants and marine facilities because of its heat and fire-resistant properties and its heightened resistance to chemical degradation. Employees in petroleum plants, power generation plants, seafood processing plants, pulp mills and marine repair facilities may have come in contact with asbestos on work surfaces, wrapped around pipes, lining boilers and furnaces. Asbestos exposure was virtually unavoidable in power plants built prior to 1980. Workers sometimes wore protective gear, including gloves and facemasks, made from asbestos fibers to protective them from heat-creating elements. When asbestos is inhaled or ingested, the thin fibers that make up this mineral can cause various diseases, including mesothelioma.
