Asbestos Exposure in Nebraska

EnergyFacilityWhile Nebraska has no naturally occurring asbestosis, and a low risk to exposure, there is still a risk in small manufacturing facilities and power plants. Asbestos-containing materials were used for over half a century to insulate electric wiring, panel partitions, fire doors, electrical conduits, plaster, drywall, and even cement in numerous power and manufacturing plants.

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.
