||In order to evaluate the stress induced by the use of non-ventilated airtight workclothes, the laboratory of the environmental physiology service of the French National Research and Safety Institute (INRS) conducted a field study during asbestos removal operations. Measurement of cardiac and physiological stress enabled the formulation of proposed length of exposure. The importance of worker training in asbestos removal is emphasized, and a list of training organizations for this type of work is provided.
