Asbestos materials were once commonly found at aluminum plants, including the cement used to build these facilities, the machines used to manufacture aluminum, and protective clothing that was worn by workers. Although the link between asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer has been known for decades, some aluminum plants still contain asbestos materials that could put workers at risk of cancer.
Because of the widespread use of asbestos at these sites, aluminum plant workers may be at risk of developing mesothelioma or other asbestos-related diseases. In many cases, workers may be diagnosed with an asbestos illness decades after they stopped working at these facilities.
The following is a list of aluminum plants where asbestos exposure may have occurred:
- Alcan Aluminum Plant
