Secondary asbestos exposure, highly common among the families of Piper Aircraft Corporation workers
Every year, over 12,000 people die of diseases caused by asbestos exposure in the U.S. While the majority of asbestos victims underwent exposure in the workplace, around 8% of them became ill as a result of secondary exposure, which entails the inhalation or ingestion of mineral fibers without being in direct contact with the source of exposure. Secondary exposure mostly took place in the families of asbestos workers. The ways in which secondary asbestos exposure would happen include breathing in the fibers lingering on the clothes of the asbestos worker and shaking out their work clothes before laundering them. It is crucial to know that secondary exposure is just as menacing as contact with asbestos in occupational settings.
