Known as one of the most prominent “mountain states” it is no surprise that The Rocky Mountains are a essential talking point for the state of Colorado when it comes to asbestos and mesothelioma. With those lofty mountain ranges also comes a significant amount of asbestos in one of its naturally occurring forms. The heavy industrialization and numerous military complexes of this state have made it a prime location for dangerous levels of asbestos, which has led Colorado to take government action. Factories and military bases are not the only ones at risk when it comes to asbestos and the medical complications that accompany it. There have been reported cases of farming and mining communities with equally as worrisome asbestos exposure. For the most part strict regulations exist to keep citizens safe and these are usually carried out by the C.D.P.H.E. (Colorado State Department of Public Health and Environment). This state entity enforces strict testing and zoning guidelines in areas known to harbor this lethal mineral.

The Colorado Asbestos Control Act, passed in the early 2000’s, sought to rectify some of the earlier misgivings of the state and helped to impose more stringent regulations on how to handle asbestos when it is found.

Below is a comprehensive list of companies, operating in California, that have had known cases of Pleural Mesothelioma, Peritoneal Mesothelioma, Pericardial Mesothelioma, or Testicular Mesothelioma. Workers who were employed at any of these companies may have been subjected to life threatening levels of Asbestos.
