Kentucky Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in Kentucky

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

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

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