Título Control of incidental asbestos exposure at hazardous waste sites
Información bibliográfica July 1991, Vol.41, No.7, p.1004-1009. 12 ref.
Resumen This paper discusses asbestos regulations in the US that are not part of Superfund and examines how these regulations can help to identify, evaluate and manage the risk associated with Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) at hazardous waste cleanup sites. Unless one knows where to look for ACM at hazardous waste sites, it may go undetected even after all the traditional sampling is done. Although the U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is currently developing a policy for evaluating risk from asbestos exposure at certain Superfund sites, information from existing regulations can be used to manage hazards associated with asbestos exposure at hazardous waste sites. This paper also identifies where to find governmental agency personnel and consultants who may be retained for site-specific help.
