Tragically, the family members of workers who worked with asbestos may also be at a heightened risk of mesothelioma. It has been recognized for decades that workers could bring home significant amounts of asbestos on their bodies, hair and clothing.
Because asbestos fibers are so tiny, they can easily become lodged on a worker’s body and work clothes. Without realizing it, many workers came home every day covered in toxic asbestos dust.
These workers’ spouses and children were often exposed to significant amounts of asbestos from this contaminated clothing.
