USS Philippine Sea (CV-47) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

Built in Quincy, Massachusetts, with the hull number CV-47, this Essex-class aircraft carrier started its service in 1946. The vessel measured 888 feet and carried almost 3,500 men and between 90 and 100 aircraft before being decommissioned in 1958. As previously mentioned, the ships that were built between 1930 and 1970 contained asbestos in their equipment on board. Practically, the companies which provided the ship manufacturers with pumps, boilers, valves, and the electrical components knew that those are contaminated and present a high risk but never mentioned a word.

The crew inhaled the asbestos dust whenever they got into the boiler and engine rooms and, due to the poor ventilation, they got sick in a short period of time. Navy veterans exposed to asbestos during their service have the right to receive compensation consisting of payment of medical bills and treatments for the pain and suffering they endured as a result of their condition.
