SS Enid Victory (MCV-712) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

SS Enid Victory (MCV-712)

The SS Enid Victory (MCV-712), a Victory ship built by the Permanente Metals Corporation was laid down on May 17, 1945, and christened on June 27, the same year. During its activity, the ship carried a complement of 62 Merchant Marine and 28 US Naval Armed Guards and had served during World War II, the Vietnam War, and the Korean War. The ship was sold for scrapping in August 1993.

Asbestos exposure occurred aboard this ship, particularly in the engineering spaces and boiler rooms. During maintenance or repair work, asbestos-containing products release tiny fibers into the air where they can be easily inhaled or ingested. Subjected to this type of exposure, many shipyard workers and Navy veterans develop life-threatening conditions like mesothelioma, asbestos lung cancer, and asbestosis among many others.
