Asbestos Exposure in Nevada
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.

If you worked for any of these companies or at these jobsites in Nevada, there is a possibility that you may have been exposed to harmful asbestos which is known to causemesothelioma and lung cancer.
