Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Taylor Forge & Pipe Works workers
Upon inhaling or ingesting asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure occurs. It would happen quite frequently during the last century, as over 70 occupations involved asbestos use. When forge men would return home, their children would greet them, which could have led to secondary asbestos exposure, as they would breathe in toxic fibers from the clothes and skin of the worker. Furthermore, their wives would be exposed to asbestos the most when laundering their work clothes, as they would first shake out the clothes. Over the years, asbestos fibers would accumulate in the bodies of family members of metalworkers.
