Oregon shipyards exposed workers to asbestos
According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), between 1940 and 1980 an estimated 27 million American workers had an occupational exposure to asbestos that could affect their health.
These workers include the thousands of workers who were exposed to asbestos while working for shipyards in the United States. Many of these workers spent their careers working at shipyards in Oregon.
The shipyards in Oregon include:
- The Astoria Voyage Repair Station Shipyard
- The Cascade General Portland Shipyard
- Commercial Iron & Steel Shipyard
- The Dyer Shipyards
- The GMD Shipyards
- The Oregon Shipyards
- The Tongue Point Naval Shipyards
The workers at these shipyards who were exposed to asbestos are at an increased risk for developing serious lung diseases such as Mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
