Asbestos Exposure on Minesweepers

US Navy Minesweepers

Detection and removal of naval mines is a necessary task for the U.S. Navy, to avoid damage to their fleet and keep their America’s sea trade operational during wartime. Specialized ships known as Minesweepers were built with equipment to safely neutralize and remove mines from supply lanes and open water, allowing vessels to transport, trade, and conduct operations freely.

Ships such as minesweepers, ammunition ships, battle cruisers, amphibious warships, battleships, destroyer escortsdestroyers, escort carriers, tugboatsfloating dry docks and frigates are built prior to the 1970s used asbestos in a great deal of equipment on board. Boilers, turbines, pumps, and valves were all made from or covered with asbestos, exposing many of those who served on Minesweepers to the carcinogen. Veterans who have come into contact with asbestos in the line of duty are at a greatly increased risk of developing the otherwise rare disease mesothelioma.
