Asbestos in Utah
For decades, Utah buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many Utah residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.
The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so Utah workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of Utah asbestos exposure sites include:
- Utah factories
- Powerplants in Utah
- Refineries or Chemical Plants in Utah
