Asbestos at the Astoria Voyage Repair Station

As is true of all shipyards, excessive asbestos exposure has been a possible risk to workers at the Astoria Voyage Repair Station. Asbestos began to be strictly regulated in the late 1970s, but many ships have hundreds of parts that were installed before these regulations were put in place.

The manipulation of materials that contain asbestos can result in a release of asbestos fibers. These fibers are too small to see with the naked eye, and they are so light that once released into the air, they hang there suspended for hours or even days. The fibers also cling to the clothing and hair of the people who are in the area. They are easily inhaled and may eventually result in fatal illnesses like mesothelioma.
