Asbestos in the Power Industry
Power companies used asbestos in insulation, to cover pipes and plumbing, in protective clothing and blankets, and in construction products such as concrete, fireproofing, joint compounds, plaster and other building materials. Asbestos may have been released from these products as they aged, or were damaged or worked on, exposing workers to the dangerous fibers.
