Asbestos exposure occurred mostly between the 1940s and the early 1980s. Among the most prevalent trades 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 from 10 to 50 years, most people diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer in 2022 were exposed decades ago.
Exposure to asbestos in New York has been brought to the forefront in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, but asbestos has been a problem in New York for decades. One of the first companies to popularize asbestos, the H.W. Johns Manufacturing Company (now Johns Manville), was founded in New York City in 1958. Since then, tons of asbestos have been used in a number of industries throughout the state.
