Shipyard Workers Exposed to Asbestos
There are many retirees in New York and New Jersey that worked at shipyards during World War II. Many made careers at the shipyards in the post-war years as well. All of these shipyard workers may have been exposed to asbestos at some point in their career.
However, the new construction, overhaul and repair of Navy, merchant and other ships caused friable asbestos products to be present in the confined spaces, engines and boiler rooms of these ships. This resulted in asbestos exposure to all trades working in these areas.
