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.
Wyoming’s reliance on the oil, power generation, mining, vermiculite and chemical industries is a major cause for concern for residents of the state. Additionally, Wyoming has twelve known asbestos occurrences, which may explain why Wyoming’s mesothelioma mortality rate is one of the highest in the nation. Natrona and Laramie counties have experienced the most issues with asbestos-related illnesses while Casper Mountain and Laramie Mountain were sites of commercial asbestos mining until the early 1920s.
