Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of CertainTeed Corporation workers
Nowadays, as a result of the endeavors of federal agencies to raise public awareness during the 1970s, asbestos is rarely present in U.S. workplaces. When it is, however, employees are properly trained on how to safely handle the hazardous mineral and are also constantly provided with adequate protective equipment. Under these circumstances, secondary asbestos exposure is nearly impossible to occur today, since toxic fibers cannot escape occupational environments. Nonetheless, this route of exposure was quite common several decades ago, when industrial hygiene was practically non-existent. Consequently, numerous family members of asbestos workers came to suffer from the same diseases as people exposed in occupational settings.
