Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Eastern Company workers
If you lived in the same house as a family member who was employed at Eastern Company, chances are you were secondarily exposed to asbestos. Secondary asbestos exposure happens when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources. Because asbestos companies went to unimaginable lengths to hide the detrimental health effects of asbestos exposure during the last century, workers did not have to wear protective equipment on the job or change their clothes when their shift ended. As a result, they would often bring home asbestos dust on their clothes. Their wives would usually breathe in asbestos fibers when laundering their garments, whereas their children would come in contact with the mineral when greeting and hugging their fathers.
