Title Occupational health and hygiene following a fire in a warehouse with an asbestos cement roof
Bibliographic information Summer 1990, Vol.40, No.2, p.53-54. 4 ref.
Abstract Work on site was carefully monitored and it is believed that no health hazards occurred subsequent to the fire, in particular only very low levels of asbestos were detected during the clean-up. The need to disseminate information as widely and as rapidly as possible to the workforce and others following such a disaster is emphasised.
