If You Have a Former Kelly-Moore Paint Company Employee in Your Family, You Might Have Been Secondarily Exposed to Asbestos
Nowadays, it is a well-known fact that asbestos exposure is very dangerous, being able to cause a broad range of serious and often fatal diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. Very few companies in the U.S. employ this toxic mineral at the moment, opting for safe alternatives which will not threaten the health of workers and consumers. However, the situation has not always been the same. During the last century, asbestos exposure would commonly occur in the workplace and, to make matters worse, in the houses of employees as well. Since company executives were mainly preoccupied with their own financial gain, little to no attention was paid to industrial hygiene. This way, employees would return home at the end of their shift covered with asbestos dust, which, at the time, was not seen as more than “nuisance dust”. Unfortunately, secondary asbestos exposure took a heavy toll of numerous family members of Kelly-Moore Paint Company workers.
If you shared the same house with someone who was working at Kelly-Moore Paint Company while they were using asbestos, you are susceptible to developing a serious disease in the future. The health consequences of secondary asbestos exposure are the same as those of direct exposure, namely lung disease and various cancers. We advise you to keep a close eye on your health and undergo regular medical examinations to check the health of your lungs.
