Marine Sector

For a number of reasons, ships can present an increased risk of asbestos exposure. First, the use of asbestos in shipbuilding over the years has been high, and has included a disproportionate large amount of blue and brown asbestos which is considered to be the worst, this along with the most dangerous asbestos application methods such as spraying, have been particularly prevalent in ship construction, and these methods also increase friability.

Added to this that ships are not stable environment: they roll, pitch, yaw, slam and vibrate, and in the engine room these issues are magnified by vibrating machinery and it is these conditions that make friable asbestos far more likely to emit fibres and therefore requires a robust Asbestos Management strategy in order to comply with the regulations and reduce the risk to health of both employees and contractors as well as the persons on board.
