Massachusetts Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in Massachusetts

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

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

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