Power plant and machinery workers in Nevada have the highest risk for asbestos exposure. Nevada received many shipments of vermiculite from Libby, Montana, and it is very likely that workers who processed or handled that material were put at risk. Vermiculite was contaminated with asbestos.
Many construction workers in Nevada may also have been put at risk during renovations of the many major hotels or casinos in Las Vegas.
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.
Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Nevada
Nevada ranks 34th in the US for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 288 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.
