USS Randolph (CV/CVA/CVS-15) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

Some of the elements that composed the Navy ships were constructed with asbestos, for instance: the turbines, the valves, the pumps, the boilers and the most dangerous places onboard that presented a high risk of exposure were the engine room, boiler spaces, navigation rooms, weapons and ammunition storage rooms. Because of the poor ventilation in those spaces, Nany personnel who spent a lot of time there are likely to be sick nowadays.
