The demolition of buildings on the University of Wyoming's Laramie campus has led to concerns that anyone who was in the area at the time could be at risk for developing mesothelioma as a result of improper handling of asbestos. According to state officials, the demolition failed to conform to governmental safety regulations concerning asbestos handling: there was no inspection for the fiber prior to the demolition, the university failed to notify anyone of the asbestos risk, and no workers had the proper training in asbestos removal.
Mesothelioma has been known to develop years after the fact even in people who were only briefly exposed to the dangerously carcinogenic fiber asbestos. Even when in dust form, asbestos is a serious health risk.
