With several prominent geographical characteristics and the prevalence of two of the major natural disasters that cause asbestos exposure, denizens of California should be concerned about the risks associated with this mineral. California’s main raw material, serpentine, is known for being a rampant source of naturally occurring asbestos. The exponential population growth that has caused housing to be sparse in this state has led to more and more expansion thus more excavation of serpentine rock. This is particularly troublesome because asbestos fibers can billow out into the air during construction effectively making any new job site potentially harmful to those in the surrounding area. There are several regions that have been identified as a source of asbestos in deposit form. Over one hundred different municipalities have reported some form of asbestos related disease.

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

  1. Twenty major shipyards
  2. Several marine facilities
  3. Almost thirty oil refineries
  4. More than ten different power plants
  5. Smelting foundries and Mining operations
  6. U.S. Naval Bases
    1. Many shipyards and naval bases, the most noteworthy being the San Diego Naval Base, utilized asbestos in their ship and building construction. There is a much higher rate of asbestos exposure in our veteran heroes who served on naval vessels or were stationed at navy ship-yards
