10 Navy Jobs Commonly Linked to Asbestos Exposure

In years past, many veterans were exposed to dangerous asbestos fibers in the course of their military service. In the past few decades, asbestos has been removed from production. However, it remained the primary material for a variety of different construction and shipbuilding needs prior to the 1970s. In particular, this material was included in naval vessels, making the close quarters onboard especially dangerous.

If you have developed mesothelioma from your time in the service, there may be financial compensation available to help you deal with the burden of medical bills and related family expenses. To learn more, contact a mesothelioma attorney at Williams Kherkher today at 800-781-3955.

Veterans Commonly Exposed to Asbestos

Navy veterans in the following jobs were exposed to asbestos more frequently than many of their fellow crew members. If you served in any of the following positions, you should be especially careful about monitoring your health:

  • Boilermen and Watertenders
  • Pipefitters
  • Utilitiesmen
  • Firemen
  • Hull Maintenance Technicians
  • Instrumentmen
  • Fire Controlmen
