||Prior to the demolition of a hospital incinerator with asbestos-containing lining, ash and dust samples were analyzed for the presence of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxin (TCDD). As TCDD concentrations above the tolerated value of 5µg/kg were found, the personal protective equipment selected for the cleanup of the dioxin-containing ash and dust included a reusable overall with gloves, boots and a supplied air respirator as well as a disposable overall worn over the reusable one. All heat-producing demolition methods were banned. For the asbestos cleanup, the incinerator was tightly enclosed with a slight underpressure.
