Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of North American Rockwell Corporation workers
Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very frequent among the family members of people who were regularly handling the toxic mineral o the job. Since they were not provided with adequate protective equipment, as asbestos was not acknowledged as a health threat, workers would often bring home dangerous fibers on their clothes, skin and hair. Thereby, their wives would mostly be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow toxic fibers when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job.
