Family Members Exposed to Asbestos

The Connection Between Work and Home

The widespread use of asbestos in American industries during the 20th Century posed a danger to the people who worked with it or near it. Equally at risk are the families of these workers who bring asbestos fibers home on their clothing, in their hair, on their tools and in the family car.

Often, even the simple act of taking dirty clothes to the laundry room can cause the fibers to become airborne and inhaled. Multiply even that once-a-day act by hundreds or thousands of days — and the risk to spouses, children and others living in the home increases tremendously.

This kind of "second-hand" asbestos exposure has been known to cause lung cancer and mesothelioma in family members of the following high-risk workers:

  • Shipyard employees
  • Asbestos mining and manufacturing workers
  • Refinery workers
  • Chemical plant employees
  • Foundry workers
  • Mechanics
  • Construction workers involved with insulation work, demolition work, drywall, floor and ceiling tile, and other building related trades
  • Mechanics
  • Pipe fitters
  • Electricians
  • Boilermakers
  • Power plant workers
  • Welders
  • Roofers
