Asbestos Exposure in Indiana

SteelMillAnyone who repaired machinery in manufacturing plants, of which there were many in Indiana, was at risk for exposure to asbestos. Asbestos was used for insulation and heat retardants in the steel mills. In Indiana, steel mill workers are at the highest risk of exposure to asbestos.

Unfortunately, many of the families of workers 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.
