Asbestos Naval Shipyards

Workers at U.S. naval shipyards may have been exposed to asbestos-containing products that were used onboard naval vessels or in other military applications. Asbestos insulation and parts onboard these ships may have put workers at risk of contracting mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis or other asbestos-related diseases.
