Asbestos in Oregon
For decades, Oregon buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many Oregon residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.
The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so Oregon workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of Oregon asbestos exposure sites include:
- Oregon factories
- Powerplants in Oregon
- Refineries or Chemical Plants in Oregon
Below is a list of 121 known sites of asbestos exposure in Oregon. Asbestos exposure is known to have occurred in at least 38 Oregon cities, though the number is likely even higher.
