Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Dresser Industries workers
As a consequence of the unbelievable endeavors of asbestos companies to hide the dangers of asbestos exposure, it was only in 1971 that EPA recognized the mineral as a human carcinogen. Thus, for over four decades, both workers and consumers were exposed to asbestos, to whose terrible health consequences they were oblivious. Unfortunately, the families of people who handled asbestos on the job made no exception either, as lack of adequate industrial hygiene prompted employees to bring home asbestos fibers on their clothes. Oftentimes, they would return to their spouses and children covered in visible asbestos dust. Due to their microscopic size and rough texture, asbestos fibers can spread very easily through the environment and remain there for years. The family members of Dresser Industries workers are susceptible to developing the same awful diseases as asbestos employees themselves, from asbestosis to mesothelioma.
