Jacksonville Shipyards Areas With Asbestos Exposure

Jacksonville Shipyards

Built at the turn of the century, Jacksonville Shipyards were renowned until approximately 30 years ago, when activity ceased in the area. These were the places where hardworking employees would transform raw materials into outstanding vessels. Nowadays, the shipyards are desolate, as the warehouses and the workshops are long gone. Unfortunately, people who had a job in these shipyards during the last century were heavily exposed to asbestos. During the construction of the ships, employees would cut and sand asbestos products to fit in the vessel, which would create a lot of toxic dust that workers inhaled. A whopping 3.5 shipyard workers were exposed to asbestos during the last century, which places these people at great risk of developing a disease today.
