  • Fire Protection
where can you find asbestos
WHERE CAN YOU FIND ASBESTOS?

EVERYWHERE

  • Insulation
  • Friction Products
  • Construction Materials
  • Resilient Coatings
  • Fireproofing
  • Clothing
friable vs nonfriable
FRIABLE VS. NONFRIABLE
  • Friable – asbestos capable of being released into the air by hand pressure.
  • Non-Friable – must use mechanical means to become friable.
routes of entry
ROUTES OF ENTRY
  • Inhalation
  • Ingestion
  • But NOT
  • Absorption
  • Injection
health effects
HEALTH EFFECTS

  • Must Be Disturbed
  • Latency Period (15 to 40 years)
exposure monitoring
EXPOSURE MONITORING
  • Air Sampling
    • Area Samples
    • Personal Samples
protection from exposure ppe
PROTECTION FROM EXPOSURE-PPE
