For over two centuries, the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard was a significant naval shipyard in the United States. The Philadelphia Naval Shipyard has built a large number of ships throughout the years, and many of those ships featured asbestos-containing components. Many shipyard employees were exposed to hazardous quantities of asbestos on a regular, even daily basis. Asbestos fibers get stuck in the lungs and other internal organs after being breathed, causing fatal illnesses such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.
