Throughout the 20th century, tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians have suffered because of the debilitating diseases caused by asbestos exposure. The men and women who worked in the state’s steel mills were exposed to asbestos daily, as it was used as insulation for pipes and in boiler rooms. Ironically, the gloves and blankets steel mill workers used to protect themselves from molten steel were made with asbestos.
Asbestos was also widely used in the construction industry, causing countless union electricians, carpenters and other tradesman to be at risk when working on the demolition of old buildings or in the construction of new buildings erected during the 1950s-1970s. In southwestern Pennsylvania, virtually every new construction project during Pittsburgh’s Renaissance 1 2 initiatives meant that the thousands of workers at those job sites were exposed to dangerous asbestos dusts.
