what is asbestos
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
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
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
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
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

medical surveillance program
Medical Surveillance Program
  • All Marine Corps personnel upon assignment to a work activity involving potential exposure to asbestos shall have a medical evaluation
