Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Southern Company Services workers
Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers indirectly, secondary asbestos exposure was very common in the family members of power plant workers during the last century. It would usually happen when the children of employees greeted their father upon returning home from the job, as well as when the wives of employees laundered the work clothes of their husbands. By shaking out their clothes, the women would unavoidably breathe in toxic fibers that, over the years, would accumulate in their lungs.
Secondary asbestos exposure can have the same health consequences as direct asbestos exposure, which is why, if you inhabited the same house as a power plant worker who was employed at Southern Company Services during the last century, you should keep a close eye on your health. You should know that if you develop a disease related to asbestos exposure, you can also file a claim with the company, which will result in a significant sum of money that will help you afford better treatment.
