Abstract

This paper describes a method to identify individual workplaces and to determine the number of employees at those workplaces who have had substantial exposure to asbestos. A total of 486,400 individuals are estimated to have had substantial exposure to asbestos in New Jersey since the start of World War II, including 102,700 individuals from 16 manufacturing plants, 376,200 from eight shipyards, and 7,500 insulators.
