Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Flowserve Corporation workers
During the last century, living under the same roof as a family member who handled asbestos at work meant that everyone was inhaling and ingesting toxic fibers to a certain extent as well, as secondary asbestos exposure was very common. Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when one breathes in or swallows asbestos fibers from indirect sources. Asbestos companies did all in their power to cover up the carcinogenic nature of asbestos in the past, which is why employees working with the mineral were not required to change their clothes when their shift ended. Consequently, people who worked with asbestos would carry toxic dust home on their clothes. While their wives would be exposed to asbestos when laundering their garments, their children would come in contact with it when greeting their fathers.
