Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Wheelabrator Frye Inc. workers
When one breathes in or swallows asbestos fibers coming from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure occurs. It was extremely common during the last century, as over 70 industries were using asbestos in large amounts. This was also the case of Wheelabrator Frye workers. Because they were not required to change their clothes at the end of the day, they would inevitably bring asbestos dust home, exposing their family members. Usually, their wives would come in contact with asbestos when laundering their work garments, whereas their children would breathe in toxic fibers when greeting their fathers.
