People who have worked in engine rooms of ships are at high risk of having been exposed to asbestos.
Asbestos, a deadly mineral that is known to cause diseases like lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis, was used as a fire retardant in engine rooms.
Asbestos exposure can occur when asbestos containing materials are disturbed for example, by hammering, cutting or other applications of force. Such force can cause the asbestos-containing material to release asbestos fibers.
Asbestos fibers are not visible to the human eye and can be inhaled. Asbestos-related diseases typically have a long latency period and can develop decades after exposure to asbestos.
