The city of Jamestown is located on the southern tip of Chautauqua Lake and is a major producer of wood furniture and mattresses. Although the city was once called the “Furniture Capital of the World,” times have slowed down and production has decreased. Despite this, Jamestown still puts out some of the best furniture in the United States and has a strong concentration of people with Swedish and Italian ancestry.

In 2009, the United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited and filed against a Jamestown company for allegedly exposing temporary works to asbestos. The Jamestown company had been hiring the temporary workers to remove insulation from pipes within the company’s facilities and did not test the insulation for asbestos. Under Federal Laws, the Jamestown company was required to provide the workers with respirators and protective clothing when they worked with the insulation. Asbestos exposure has been linked with many diseases including mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer and asbestosis.
