Navy Trades Exposed to Asbestos

Navy veterans who held certain jobs were exposed to asbestos. Many Navy jobs involved working in confined spaces with poor ventilation, operating machinery and equipment that used asbestos components.

Asbestos was used extensively as fireproofing and insulation in ships’ engine rooms and boiler rooms because of its resistance to heat. Navy veterans are at greater risk decades later of developing mesothelioma, an aggressive form of cancer.
