Asbestos Exposure in Georgia

Power Plant

Georgia was a booming industrial state during the time when asbestos exposure occurred. Paper mills, textile and cotton mills, power plants and other industrial-type businesses caused exposure at more than 50 different locations throughout the state. 

It was also the first state to commercially mine asbestos.

People who worked in these large plants are at a high risk of mesothelioma and lung caner because of the asbestos used in various equipment. 

Unfortunately, many of the families of workers at the sites (listed below) also have an increased risk of developing cancer because of the asbestos fibers that were carried home on the body and clothing of those workers.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Georgia

Georgia ranks 23rd in the US for asbestos-related deaths. To date, 677 people in the state have died from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer.
