POLICY

The substitution of asbestos with non-asbestos materials

The use of engineering,

administrative controls &

personal protective equipment

where substitution is not possible


What is asbestos l.jpg

WHAT IS ASBESTOS?

  • A Naturally Occurring Mineral

  • Mined from the Earth:

  • Strong & Long Lasting

  • Incombustible

  • Highly Resistant to Chemicals

  • Poor Conductor of Heat and

  • Electricity


Asbestos containing material l.jpg

Asbestos Containing Material

Friable - Crumbled or Reduced to

powder by hand pressure

Friability - the likelihood that fibers will

break loose and become airborne.

Non-Friable - Usually found

bonded into other materials


Materials containing asbestos l.jpg

Materials Containing Asbestos

  • Suspended ceiling tiles

  • Thickening agents in paints

  • Exterior siding shingles

  • Fireproof curtains

  • Vinyl flooring

  • Friction products (brake & clutch facings)

  • Reinforcing materials (cement pipe & sheet materials)

  • Primary insulation and lagging material for high temperature machinery, boilers, and piping


Entry into the body l.jpg

ENTRY INTO THE BODY

  • BY INHALATION

  • BY INGESTION

  • In the body, asbestos fibers can become

  • embedded in the tissues of the respiratory

  • tract (alveoli) or the digestive system.

  • Twenty to 40 years before symptoms

  • appear to asbestos exposure. Three

  • distinct diseases can be caused by inhalation

  • or ingestion


Health hazards of smoking l.jpg

Health Hazards of Smoking

Asbestos workers who smoke have a 50 times greater chance of getting lung cancer than those

workers who do not smoke
