Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Kaiser Aluminum workers
Because asbestos companies were severely lacking when it came to industrial hygiene and safety, secondary exposure would often take place in the homes of employees. As workers did not have to change or shower at the end of the day, their family members would unknowingly inhale toxic fibers from their clothes, which were usually laden with asbestos dust. While not everyone who had undergone secondary asbestos exposure developed a disease, numerous people did and new cases still emerge annually throughout the U.S. Regardless of the route of exposure, asbestos is highly dangerous to human health. Once fibers reach the inside of the body, they gradually cause inflammation and scarring to the organ they attach themselves to, which may eventually result in a disease.
