As a fire resistant material, asbestos, was a natural protective element for boilers. Also known as Fire Rooms, boilers using asbestos were a part of many military vessels as a power source. As a result, many boiler room servicemen were exposed to this dangerous substance.
The International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Shipbuilders and Blacksmiths recognize the dangers many of its members were exposed to and offer information about exposure and mesothelioma. See more here.
Military veterans who worked as boilermakers may have an even higher risk than other veterans. Other military jobs include pipe fitters, carpenters, shipyard workers, engine room workers, sailors and those veterans who worked in ship repair and maintenance.
