Texas 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, approximately 27 million American workers had an occupational exposure to asbestos that can 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 entire careers working at shipyards in Texas.
The shipyards in Texas include:
- The Naval Station Ingleside Shipyard
- The South Texas Ship Repair Shipyard
- The Southwest Marine Shipyard
- The Sun Shipbuilding Shipyard
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.
