Before the dangers of asbestos exposure were widely known, the substance was commonly utilized on Navy ships due to its heat and fire-resistant properties. Asbestos could be found in floor tiles, gaskets, valves, and other equipment on board the ships.Navy Workers at Risk of Asbestos Exposure
As asbestos-containing materials on Navy warship deteriorated over time, their fibers broke down and became airborne, which led Navy workers to be exposed to the material. Some of the workers who were at the highest risk of asbestos exposure include Navy veterans who removed or repaired damaged asbestos. Navy veterans who were tasked with maintaining the carriers’ boilers and engine rooms also faced an increased risk of asbestos exposure. Many shipyard workers who assisted in the construction of Navy vessels were also at increased risk of being diagnosed with asbestos-related conditions.U.S. Aircraft Carriers Index
