In this deposition we recently took Chevron admits that it did not stop using asbestos in its Perth Amboy refinery until 1972, more than 3 decades after learning that asbestos could kill. According to this witness there was more than 12 miles of asbestos on the piping alone in the Perth Amboy. This had the capacity to cause massive exposure to anyone in the area where asbestos was installed or removed.

Until sometime in the mid 1970s the majority of industrial jobsites used asbestos as part of the industrial process. This included construction sites, refineries, powerplants, chemical factories and pharmaceutical companies. For a listing of some of the sites click on the following link.
