Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of International Creosoting & Construction Co. workers
During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very frequent occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers, as they would often bring home toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair, since they were not required to wear any protective equipment. Consequently, their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, while their children would be exposed to the toxic mineral when greeting their father upon returning home from the job. It was not until 1980 that asbestos use finally became regulated in the workplace. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body.
