If you have a family member who worked at Westinghouse Electric Company, your health might also be at stake
Highly prevalent for the better part of the last century, secondary asbestos exposure is no longer a cause for concern today. Since asbestos regulations became effective, the few occupational groups who still handle this hazardous mineral benefit from adequate training and appropriate protective gear. Nevertheless, past secondary asbestos exposure still causes victims every year in the U.S. According to estimates, it is responsible for up to 10% of the 12,000-15,000 people who die of asbestos diseases annually throughout the country. Because asbestos is always dangerous when fibers become airborne, secondary exposure is equally menacing as direct exposure.
