How Are Power Plant Employees Exposed to Asbestos?

Power plant workers at the most risk for asbestos exposure were blue-collar employees whose job descriptions required them to do hands-on work installing and maintaining pipes and electrical devices. This work exposed them to asbestos in the insulation, often resulting in complications later in life. Upgrading the plant’s infrastructure typically required employees to saw through existing asbestos materials before installing even more asbestos products. Many plant workers sprayed asbestos insulation directly onto heated machinery such as boilers, creating an increased risk for inhalation.

Supervisors, administrators, engineers, and office workers who did not handle asbestos products directly may also have been exposed to asbestos in the workplace. Poor ventilation in many power plants allowed airborne asbestos fibers to circulate throughout the facility undetected for decades. If you believe you were exposed to asbestos at work, it is critical to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Mesothelioma has a long latency period, meaning that symptoms typically do not develop until many years after your initial exposure. A medical professional may be able to catch any illnesses early and devise a plan for treatment. 

Products Containing Asbestos Found in Power Plants

Power plants were home to many products that contained asbestos. If you worked in a power plant when asbestos was commonly used, you may have been exposed through the following products:

  • Acoustic plaster
  • Asbestos blankets
  • Asbestos pipe covering
  • Industrial boilers
  • Asbestos panels
  • Repairing compounds
  • Gaskets
  • Caulk
  • Cement
  • Firebricks

It is also important to note that power plant employees may have unknowingly brought asbestos fibers into their homes on their uniforms or work clothes. This can lead to deadly secondhand exposure. If you suspect you were exposed to asbestos through a loved one, you may also have grounds to file a claim for your losses. An experienced New York power plant asbestos exposure attorney can review your case and determine the best path forward to pursue justice.
