Asbestos Exposure in New Hampshire

Industries in New Hampshire where workers may have been exposed to high levels of asbestos include power plants and construction sites.

New Hampshire is home to several power plants and power stations. Because of the intense heat buildup during the power generation process, asbestos was commonly used prior to 1980 as an insulator and fire retardant. Asbestos protected the power plant equipment regularly exposed to extremely high temperatures, such as boilers, generators and turbines. Asbestos was also used to fireproof roof structures and floors. When floors and ceilings were repaired, asbestos dust was distributed throughout the powerhouse, putting everyone at risk of asbestos inhalation. Workers sometimes wore clothing made from asbestos fibers to protect them from high levels of heat.

Another high risk industry for asbestos exposure in New Hampshire is construction.  New Hampshire has many long established towns with beautiful, historic buildings.  City-wide fires were relatively commonplace during the 19th Century.  When the fireproof properties of asbestos were discovered in the 1850's, asbestos began to be used as a building material.  Asbestos was used for wallboard, ceiling tiles, insulation, roofing materials and floor tiles.  Today, whenever historical buildings are renovated or torn down, asbestos dust and fibers can be released into the environment.  Proper safety precautions need to be taken to avoid asbestos exposure, such as dampening asbestos-containing materials, wearing disposable protective clothing and avoiding the use of power tools.
