Asbestos Exposure in Power Plants

Whether we like it or not, America runs on power. U.S. power plants generate the massive amount of energy required to sustain our daily habits. Every time we flip a switch, turn on an appliance, and heat or cool our homes, we use energy that has been created in one of the numerous power plants located in the United States.

Power plants do not run themselves, however, and require the work of hundreds of men and women to ensure that they are always fully functional and well-maintained. These men and women work around the clock to provide us with the energy we need to go about our lives.

There are many dangers associated with working at a power plant. Working with electricity can be incredibly dangerous and can cause fires, electrocution, or burns to occur. For this reason, many American power plants have used asbestos-filled construction materials to construct our plants. Asbestos is very durable and is known to have useful fire resistant qualities. Unfortunately, the use of asbestos posed an entirely different set of problems for power plant workers, putting them at serious risk of diseases such as mesothelioma.

While asbestos was once a popular insulation material, it has been discovered that the substance has devastating effects on the human body, including the development of cancer. Mesothelioma is a form of lung cancer that has been linked to asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma takes many years to show symptoms, so early diagnosis and treatment are very difficult.

Power plant workers who have been exposed to asbestos should contact a doctor immediately to undergo testing for mesothelioma. If you are a power plant worker who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, the next step is to speak with a mesothelioma lawyer. An experienced mesothelioma lawyer can guide you through the complex legal process and ensure that your rights are protected every step of the way.
