WITNESS APPEAL: DID YOU WORK AT ROSYTH DOCKYARD?

Did you know James (Jim) Hamilton? Jim worked at the dockyard between 1955 and 1975.

Our specialist asbestos claims team have been instructed by Jim who has sadly developed mesothelioma.

Jim worked as a painter and decorator and worked on buildings across the entire site.

We are investigating how Jim may have come into contact with asbestos and are interested in speaking to anyone who worked at Rosyth Dockyard at any time but particularly  between the mid-1950s and the mid-1970s.

If you have any information that may assist please get in touch with Maggie Powell.

    Buildings in the dockyard were fed by a steam system, which in turn were lagged with asbestos style fabrics. Pipework inside the workshops was lagged . The existing paintwork in workshops would be old and flaking.
    Asbestos lagging within ships was sealed rather than removed.
    Existing bitumen based paints were chipped off ad then over painted.
