Typically, asbestos exposure will have occurred sometime between the 1950s and the 1980s. Some of the most prevalent professions that encountered large quantities of asbestos include power plant workers, maritime workers, industrial workers, plumbers, pipefitters, electricians, mechanics, machinists, miners, railroad workers and construction workers, to name a few. Since the latency period for mesothelioma patients is approximately 40 years, most people diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer in 2020 were exposed decades ago.
Texas’ abundance of oil refineries and other industrial workplaces caused many Texans to be exposed to asbestos for decades during the 20th century. In addition, many Texans were exposed to asbestos simply by living in close proximity to asbestos processing plants, many of which imported shipments of asbestos-containing vermiculite from W.R. Grace’s notorious mine in Libby, Montana.
Known jobsites and companies with asbestos exposure in Texas include, but are not limited to, Texaco Oil, Gulf Oil, Lone Star Industries, Texas Chemical, Lyondell Chemical, Chevron Phillips Chemical, Bethlehem Shipping Company, Gulfport Shipping Company and Todd Shipping Company. In addition, a number of shipyards and schools in Texas contained asbestos and some still do to this day.
