Washington, DC, July 17, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Shipyard workers frequently had extreme exposure to asbestos in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s as workplace rules about exposure to asbestos were nonexistent at US Navy Shipyards in places like Norfolk, Virginia, Bremerton, Washington, Hunters Point, California, or the Long Beach Naval Shipyard in California.
"Just as bad, US Navy sailors frequently had to stay on board their ship night and day if it was in one of these shipyards for a retrofit or overhaul. Over the years we have talked to scores of shipyard workers and US Navy Veterans who had super exposure to asbestos. Frequently, asbestos covered them head to toe every workday, or for the sailors stuck on the ship 24 hours a day."
