Wisconsin Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in Wisconsin

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

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

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