Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Pan American World Airways Inc.
During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was very common in the families where one of the members worked with asbestos on a regular basis, such as aircraft mechanics. Asbestos companies did all in their power to cover up the dangers of asbestos exposure, and as a result, employees were not given protective equipment to wear on the job. They were also not required to change their clothes at the end of their shift. Therefore, they would bring home asbestos fibers on their work clothes, as well as on their skin and hair, since asbestos fibers are microscopic. Upon greeting the worker, their family members would inhale and ingest toxic fibers.
