Abstract

Shipbuilding industry is listed as heavy industry due to the use of raw materials and production processes, which mostly have an impact on human health and environment as contaminants. Various types of solid, liquid and gaseous form of wastes are known as the outcome of shipbuilding and ship repair processes. These contaminants may affect water, air and soil unless preventive actions are considered. The effect of these contaminants on workers health is as important as the environmental effect.
