The asbestos mineral is inexpensive and effective in protecting materials from high heat and was widely used for much of the 20th century. There is a history of asbestos use in Cheyenne’s most significant and important industries, or occupations such as: railroads, oil refineries, manufacturing, and the military. Asbestos was commonly used by the military for the construction of ships, vessels, and housing prior to 1982.The use of asbestos containing materials is still legal in the United States but laws have been passed to regulate its use.
Other workers that were at risk during this time include plumbers, electricians, and other unknowing trade workers. Even today people can be exposed, because once asbestos begins to degrade, the particles become breathable in the air and can be inhaled; this exposure can cause tumors to form around the internal organs.
