Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Papco Inc. workers
Regrettably, the family members of asbestos workers were at moderate risk of exposure themselves, as frequently, employees would bring home toxic dust on their hair, skin, and clothes. When laundering the work garments of their husbands, women would inhale asbestos fibers, whereas children would come in contact with the mineral upon greeting their fathers. This is how secondary asbestos exposure would occur. Moreover, because asbestos fibers are microscopic and have rough edges, they would also become attached to the furniture covered in fabric and any fabric object.
