Asbestos Exposure in Missouri

VW-Werk, Wolfsburg Audi 80 Montage des Triebsatzes

Asbestos was used as a heat retardant or insulator in Missouri’s manufacturing and chemical industries prior to knowing the health risks for employees. The state has a mix of older industries that are notorious for hazardous asbestos exposure. The Mack Truck plant, Ford Motor Company and Chrysler facilities used asbestos gaskets on their engines and asbestos brake shoes on their wheels. Power plants used asbestos as insulation on pipes and tanks. Workers in boiler rooms and power plants even wore protective gear that used asbestos as an insulating material.

Unfortunately, many of the families of these 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.
