Over the years, workers have unintentionally brought asbestos home from work on their clothes, skin and hair.
 
The wife who greeted her husband at the door and who shook out and laundered his clothes has been exposed.
 
The children who hugged him or sat in his lap at the end of a long day, leaning against his skin, hair and clothes, have be exposed.
 
Everyone who he has been in contact with has been exposed and has the potential to develop mesothelioma.
