Asbestos Exposure in New Hampshire

PaperMill-WisconsinNew Hampshire’s thriving textiles, shoe manufacturing, and paper mills, put many workers at risk to asbestos exposure. In textile mills, asbestos was used to insulate the fabric weaving machinery, and was even used in its garments because of its lightweight nature and heat preventative properties.

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.
