||Fibre-based materials, some of which are very old, are used in a growing number and range of activities. Some fibres cause major risks to human health and, especially to persons working with them. The aim of this industrial study is to not only identify the fibres used, activity sectors concerned and processes involved, but also to estimate fibre quantities, together with the number of user facilities and potentially exposed employees. It has been conducted through a questionnaire-based survey of more than 10,000 enterprises likely to use fibres. A large amount of data has been compiled. The combined results will be made available in a publicly-accessible database on the INRS website.
