Resumen/cita: This new standard reduces the permissible exposure limit to 0.2 fibres per cubic centimeter of air, determined as an eight-hour time-weighted average airborne concentration. It applies to all workers covered by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (LS 1970 - USA 1) who are exposed to asbestos, tremolite, anthophyllite and/or actinolite. Separate standards tailored to differing conditions have been issued for general industry (including the maritime sector) and for construction. Inter alia, the standard provides for methods of compliance, personal protective equipment, employee monitoring, medical surveillance, communication of hazards to employees and recordkeeping.
