Bayonne Shipyard Areas With Asbestos Exposure

Bayonne Shipyard

The shipyard was built in 1948, originally as a staging area for military supplies and personnel shipping to Europe during World War II. It is owned by Bayonne Dry Dock & Repair Corp. and currently operates a full-service ship repair yard in the Port Jersey area of New York and New Jersey harbor. Regrettably, during the last century, the shipyard exposed workers to asbestos significantly, as the mineral was fundamental to shipbuilding. Asbestos was present in over 300 products aboard each and every vessel, from the insulation on boilers and hot pipes to construction products such as floor tiles, wallboard, and ceiling tiles. People who were employed at Bayonne Shipyard should keep a close eye on their health for unusual symptoms that may indicate a serious disease.
