Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Flexitallic Gasket Company workers
For the better part of the last century, asbestos was a serious threat to the health of over 75 occupational groups in the U.S. The inhalation and ingestion of asbestos fibers can result in lung disease, as well as in numerous forms of cancer. Nonetheless, workers were not the only demographic at risk for these horrible illnesses. Due to their tiny dimension and rough texture, asbestos fibers can easily spread throughout the environment from the main source. This aspect, along with poor industrial hygiene, unavoidably led to the exposure of people outside of industrial settings, such as the family members of asbestos workers. As they were not required to change or shower before returning home, employees – including those at Flexitallic Gasket Company – would often carry asbestos dust on their clothes in their houses, where it would subsequently be inhaled or ingested by spouses and children.
