The Family Members of Celotex Workers Are Susceptible to Lung Disease and Cancer, Too
Industrial hygiene and the safety of workers were two aspects manufacturers were lacking during the last century, which explains why so many people have developed terrible diseases over recent decades. As the company policy did not require them to change clothes or shower at the end of the day, Celotex workers would carry asbestos fibers home every day, unknowingly endangering the health of their families. Children would commonly inhale toxic fibers upon greeting their fathers, whereas wives would breathe in the fibers while laundering their husbands’ work clothes. Today, 8% of victims are women, most of whom were secondarily exposed to this carcinogen.
