Asbestos Exposure in Hawaii

The state of Hawaii has a history of widespread asbestos use, from public buildings to commercial establishments. Nearly every building in the state constructed before 1980 including schools, state buildings and military bases was built with asbestos products. These facilities continue to pose a public health hazard, as exposure to asbestos can cause deadly diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestosis.

In recent years, Hawaii government officials have made efforts to protect its residents. Health officials closely monitor all public buildings that still contain asbestos. Schools, for example, are inspected every six months to ensure that asbestos fibers cannot be released into the air.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Hawaii

To this date, more than 100 mesothelioma and asbestos-related deaths have been reported from Hawaii. That number ranks the state of Hawaii 42nd in the United States on Deaths caused by mesothelioma.

Filing an asbestos claim if you live in Hawaii
