Asbestos Exposure on Escort Carriers

Escort Carriers

A smaller, lighter version of a standard Aircraft Carrier, Escort Carriers primary advantage was their cost and ease of construction. This allowed the U.S. Navy to send in these ships when otherwise faced with a lack of carriers. Typically, Escort Carriers were used to defend Ally Convoys against German U-Boats in WWII.

As they were mostly constructed and used during the Second World War, Escort Carriers were built with a significant amount of equipment made from or containing asbestos. Boilers, pumps, valves, turbines, and other steam propulsion equipment utilized the carcinogen, leaving those who worked in boiler and engine spaces at especially high risk of exposure.  Veterans who were exposed to asbestos in the line of duty are at risk of developing mesothelioma.
