Asbestos in Idaho

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

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

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