The Spouses and Children of Ford Motor Company Employees Might Have Also Been Exposed to Asbestos
Since the carcinogenicity of asbestos has not been officially recognized until 1971, companies which made use of this fibrous mineral – although knowing about the disastrous health consequences exposure could have – did not bother to protect their employees and ensure a safe work environment. Unfortunately, Ford Motor Company is no exception, as it has been hit with thousands of related lawsuits over recent years. Former workers are not the only demographic who take legal action against the company, as inhaling asbestos fibers in occupational settings was not the only route of exposure. Also known as domestic exposure, secondary exposure takes place when a person is in contact with a hazardous agent without being nearby the source of pollution. Tragically, as Ford Motor Company workers involved in the production of automotive components were not required to change clothes at the end of the day, numerous of their family members were exposed to asbestos via this route.
