Abstract
A Health Hazard Evaluation investigation was conducted by NIOSH on August 16, 1977, at Terminal B, Trans World Airlines, Inc., Kansas City International Airport (SIC-4582), in Kansas City, Missouri. The survey was prompted by a request from an authorized representative of the approximately 250 affected employees regarding potential exposure to airborne asbestos (1332214) fibers. Employees exposure to airborne asbestos fibers was less than allowed by NIOSH's revised recommended standard. However, there may be a potential exposure of employees to airborne asbestos during certain operations or after aging of the asbestos since all bulk samples of the insulation obtained in the ramp area showed the insulation used in these areas contained 45 percent asbestos. Recommendations are made to alleviate any potential hazards noted during the survey.
