Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania.
The shipyards in Pennsylvania include:
- The Bethlehem Steel Shipyard
- The Chester Pennsylvania Shipyard
- The Philadelphia Naval Shipyard
- Sun Shipbuilding Shipyard
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.
