United Land Corporation of America employees exposed to asbestos

During the last century, asbestos was popular because of the strength and durability it had. It was also useful for fireproofing building materials and structures. Construction workers had to handle asbestos products without protective gear during new construction, renovations, and demolition. When construction workers would disturb asbestos products in any way, such as by cutting or sanding, they would inevitably release toxic dust in the air they would subsequently breathe. Furthermore, asbestos dust would cloud the air on the entire construction site, putting other workers at risk as well since they usually had to work close to each other.

Asbestos is presumed to lurk in all the buildings put up between the 1920s and the 1980s, more specifically in walls, floors, ceilings, insulation, pipes, and boiler rooms.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the families of United Land Corporation of America workers

Occurring when one would inhale or ingest asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure would happen quite often during the last century in the families of asbestos workers. Because the giant asbestos corporations were doing all in their power to cover up the dangers of asbestos exposure, employees would not be instructed to wear protective gear on the job. This led to workers bringing home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin, and hair. When their wives would launder their work garments, they would be exposed to the carcinogenic mineral, as they would first shake out the clothes.
