The geographical makeup of this state makes it a prime candidate for naturally occurring Asbestos. This can be a serious cause for concern as there are inherent risks associated with Asbestos namely Asbestos related cancers. There are several regions where this threat is more prevalent including Juneau, Ketchikan, along the banks of the Yukon River, in several of the more popular National Parks, and near Bristol and Kuskokwim Bay.

Below is a list of industries that have had known cases of exposure to Asbestos:

  • Pulp refineries and mills
  • Several seafood processing yards
  • Naval construction sites
  • Power plants
  • Oil & Petroleum refineries
  • Schools
    • There are statues currently in place that force administrators to frequently monitor and test their educational facilities for asbestos exposure

Below is a comprehensive list of companies, operating in Alaska, that have had known cases of Pleural Mesothelioma, Peritoneal Mesothelioma, Pericardial Mesothelioma, or Testicular Mesothelioma.
