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.
Those who worked in Wisconsin’s metal works, paper mills and vermiculite processing facilities are most at risk of developing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Cities in Wisconsin with the highest incidence of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases include Milwaukee, Kenosha, Waukesha, Madison and Green Bay. Unforunately, Wisconsin workers were not the only people at risk due to asbestos exposure. Consumers in the state were exposed to asbestos as early as the 1890s and buildings erected prior to the 1980s may still contain asbestos materials.
