      Worker's Family Protection Act (29 U.S.C. 671a)
    • Description:
      "Information was gathered from Federal and State health, labor, and environmental agencies, as well as from groups with special concerns regarding the incidences of impaired health and safety to family members resulting from exposure to hazardous substances found at the workplace of another family member. Workers have been found to inadvertently carry home hazardous materials on their clothes, skin, hair, tools, and in their vehicles. Some of the resulting health effects reviewed in this report include chronic beryllium (7440417) disease, asbestosis and mesothelioma, lead (7439921) poisoning, neurological effects and mental retardation caused by lead exposure, deaths and neurological effects from pesticide exposure, chemical burns from caustic substances, chloracne and other effects from chlorinated hydrocarbon exposure, neurological effects from mercury (7439976), abnormal development from estrogenic substances, asthmatic and allergic reactions from dusts, liver angiosarcoma from arsenic (7440382), dermatitis from fibrous glass, status epilepticus from chemical exposure, and diseases from infectious agents. Preventive measures which were found to be effective when used in the workplace or at home were noted. Also discussed were procedures for decontaminating home and clothing, applicable Federal and State laws, responses to incidents of workers' home contamination, and recommendations for future research and education." - NIOSHTIC-2
