Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of A.P. Green Industries workers
In 2009, seven years after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, A.P. Green Industries established a trust fund, which has since then been providing both former workers and family members injured by asbestos exposure with financial compensation. Secondary asbestos exposure, which entails the inhalation or ingestion of toxic fibers without being near the primary source of contamination, would happen frequently during the last century, which is why today, up to 10% of asbestos victims are estimated to have developed their illness due to this type of contact with the mineral. Either by laundering the asbestos worker’s clothes or by greeting him upon returning home from the job, numerous women and children have come to suffer from the same diseases as people exposed in occupational settings.
