Shipyard health problems are similar to those which exist in construction work generally, but tend to be more acute due to the need to work in confined spaces. This fact creates special conditions which increase the risks of occupational diseases and accidents. The Authors consider two special health problems, namely those due to welding and asbestos exposure, and bring earlier studies on the subject up to data. The incidence of welding accidents during 1967 and the relationship between length of exposure and prevalence of asbestosis are among the data tabulated.
