Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Northrop Grumman workers
The families of Northrop Grumman employees were at significant risk of asbestos exposure during the last century, as the workers would often bring home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin, hair, and shoes. Since asbestos companies went above and beyond to keep the illusion that asbestos was safe, none of the people who handled it on the job were given protective equipment such as respirators. They were not asked to change their clothes at the end of their shift either. Consequently, you can see how easy it was for asbestos to end up in the homes of Northrop Grumman workers.
Usually, the wives of employees would inhale and ingest asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with the mineral when greeting their fathers. Over the years, the number of asbestos fibers in the bodies of family members would grow, which now places these people at moderate risk of developing a serious disease such as lung cancer. If you shared a house with a Northrop Grumman worker and have a diagnosis that seems related to asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm, as we also take up cases of secondary asbestos exposure.
