Asbestos Exposure in Alaska
Although Alaska is currently one of the lowest ranking states in the U.S. for asbestos-related deaths, environmental and occupational exposure to the toxic mineral is still common. The state’s complex and active geology creates massive deposits of ultramafic and serpentine mineral ore, two rock types in which naturally occurring asbestos (NOA) is formed.
Processed asbestos has also been widely used by Alaskan industries for commercial materials such as insulation, pipe and furnace wraps, roof shingles, floor tiles and textured paints. Despite the associated health risks, many Alaskan companies used the toxic mineral as a building material before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began to regulate its use in the 1970s and ’80s.
