Florida Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in Florida

For decades, Florida buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many Florida residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.

The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so Florida workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of Florida asbestos exposure sites include:

  • Florida factories
  • Powerplants in Florida
  • Refineries or Chemical Plants in Florida

Below is a list of 123 known sites of asbestos exposure in Florida. Asbestos exposure is known to have occurred in at least 61 Florida cities, though the number is likely even higher.

The Florida city with the most asbestos exposure sites was Pensacola, FL, with 13 known sites contaminated by asbestos.
