Louisiana is the home of (8) key generation plants, two chief waterways, numerous marine type industries, and to top that off countless oil drilling as well as refining industries. Most if not all of these industries have been identified has having been exposed with asbestos. In many of the cases, exposure was accidental or inadvertent; nevertheless, willful negligence is not unusual. Those that believe they may have been exposed should contact a clinic as soon as possible.

Shipbuilding

One of the reasons ships have been known to contain great amounts of Asbestos is because the fear of a fire at sea. The most common places are in the boiler room and in the engine room. The chief Louisiana shipbuilding companies are:

Avondale
Bollinger
Higgins
Todd (before 1990)

Cement Plants

A study done 1987 of Louisiana cement manufacturers found that before 1960 these cement plants used white Chrysotile asbestos as their primary ingredient and it consequently caused elevated rates among the employees in comparison to those companies that used amphibole asbestos.

Power Plants

Because crocidolite asbestos is extremely resistant to electrical currents and catching fire, it was common practice to use it in conduits, pipe fittings and fire doors. 13% of power plant workers showed “abnormal” chest x-rays for this very fact.

Oil Rigs

Crude oil can also be very volatile. Therefore, asbestos can be found all over refining facilities especially where oil drilling is done. One of the ways many were exposed was by the wearing of protective clothing, such as fireproof gloves and jackets. Whenever nay of these were ripped, asbestos fibers were released into the air and easily breathed in.

Below you will find key labor sites in Indiana, where workers have been proven to have come in contact with Asbestos. Also keep in mind that there are countless older buildings in Louisiana that have been either demolished or renovated that had substantial sums of asbestos-containing ingredients.

Statistics

Due to asbestosis, Louisiana’s asbestos fatalities are somewhat higher than those from mesothelioma. One of the main reasons for this is the fact that Asbestosis is not only easier to detect but once it’s detected it is treatable, where Mesothelioma is not. Either way, all those exposed in such a way, are at risk and must seek medical care at mesothelioma clinics.
