  • Airborne Concentrations of Asbestos Onboard Maritime

    Although many studies have been conducted regarding asbestos workers (e.g. miners and those in the manufacturing environment) and professionals who work with ACMs (e.g. insulators, pipefitters and other craftsman), it has often been a matter of speculation regarding the airborne concentration of asbestos in environments containing intact insulation.

  • Asbestos History and news archive 1950's through present

    Asbestos is a mineral that is made up of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metal ions. These needle shaped fibers are so small that they cannot be seen unless the concentration in the air is very heavy. Asbestos is an excellent material for insulation because the fibers are strong, flexible and will not burn.

  • Mechanisms in the Pathogenesis of Asbestosis and Silicosis

    Epidemiologic studies indicate very clearly that the development of asbestosis requires heavy exposure to asbestos and provide strong evidence that there is a threshold fiber dose below which asbestosis is not seen; this dose appears to be, at a minimum, in the range of approximately 25 to 100 fiber/ml/yr (7, 16-19). Thus, asbestosis is usually seen in workers who have had many years of high level exposure, for
