Abstract
A Hazard Evaluation and Technical Assistance survey was conducted by NIOSH on April 28-29, 1977 at the Vimasco Cable coating (SIC-2851) facility operating at the Cincinnati Gas and Electric Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. The Vimasco cable coating is a fire protection material consisting of polyvinyl-acetate (9003207) and asbestos (1332214). The concentration of asbestos in all 30 samples (28 personal and 10 general area samples) taken during the survey was below the analytical limits of detection of 0.05 fibers per cubic centimeter of air. Based on these data and recent NIOSH recommended environmental criteria, it is concluded that no health hazard exists during application of the Vimasco cable coating operation.
