||Application of sprayed inorganic fiber containing asbestos: Occupational health hazards
||Mar. 1972, Vol.33, No.3, p.178-191. Illus. 16 ref.
||Mineral fibre materials containing asbestos are used extensively in the construction and shipbuilding industries for fireproofing, thermal insulation, acoustical insulation and condensation control, in various compositions. Spraying is associated with serious health hazards, both from direct and indirect exposure. Asbestos fibre concentrations may range from 30 to more than 100 fibres/cm3. Control measures in the application of sprayed, asbestos-containing fibres are discussed; emphasis is laid on adequate training and education programmes directed to the workers themselves.
