New Mexico Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in New Mexico

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

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

  • New Mexico factories
  • Powerplants in New Mexico
  • Refineries or Chemical Plants in New Mexico
