These studies were performed to determine potential exposure levels to individuals who have worked with these types of materials in the past and may still work with these products today. The work practices were conducted inside an exposure characterization laboratory (ECL) and were performed by scraping and wire brushing, chrysotile-containing (65% to 85%) sheet gaskets from a… CONTINUE READING
