Shipbuilding is an important aspect of the offshore and maritime industry. Without this occupation, there would be no vessels to perform all the necessary tasks at sea. This essential responsibility allows for countless other individuals to be employed in the offshore industry. Like other maritime jobs, it can be a very dangerous occupation.

While most occupations involve some type of risk or hazards, shipbuilding and other maritime jobs often involve a higher amount of risk. Specifically, shipbuilding often puts workers in close proximity to a number of health hazards related to toxic materials, such as cobalt, titanium, nickel, lead, iron, and others. Due to the typically cramped quarters that workers must build, repair, or install areas of the ship in, lung cancer, respiratory inflammation, and similar conditions are very common from breathing in such hazardous contaminants.
Being in such confined spaces creates an increased risk for injuries due to fires, explosion, and chemical exposure.
Whether you are working on a brand new ship or repairing an old one, you could suffer serious injuries and harm in an accident. The good news is that Arnold & Itkin is here to help. We have the experience, resources, and dedication to help. When you come to us, you can be confident in our ability to navigate your case to a successful resolution.
