Asbestos in Tennessee
For decades, Tennessee buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many Tennessee residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.
The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so Tennessee workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of Tennessee asbestos exposure sites include:
- Tennessee factories
- Powerplants in Tennessee
- Refineries or Chemical Plants in Tennessee
Below is a list of 162 known sites of asbestos exposure in Tennessee. Asbestos exposure is known to have occurred in at least 57 Tennessee cities, though the number is likely even higher.
