Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Employees at Virginia nuclear power plant possibly exposed to asbestos

According to reports from the State Department of Labor, contract employees at the Surry nuclear power plant were exposed to asbestos in April while cutting pipes on the plant.

Before the job began, safety officials said that there would not be asbestos on any of the pipes and if there was, they would clearly labeled. Later, asbestos, a known carcinogen, was found on the clothing of a dozen of the employees.

The amount of asbestos that the workers were exposed to is not known because equipment to examine the air quality was not on the site when the job was being done. An investigation into the plant’s parent company, Dominion Virginia Power, remains underway at this time.
