Abstract
Exposures to asbestos (1332214) were surveyed on June 17, 1981 at the United States Air Force Recruiting Station (SIC-9711) in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The evaluation was requested by an unspecified individual on behalf on an unreported number of workers. Air and wipe samples were collected for analysis. No asbestos fibers were found in the wipe samples, and concentrations in the air samples were below the analytical detection limit of 0.02 fiber per cubic centimeter. Inspection of the building revealed damage to the ceiling insulation panels in the basement. The author concludes that employees in the office area of the building are not exposed to an asbestos hazard, but workers who use the basement area may be exposed to asbestos. Replacement of the asbestos insulation in the basement is recommended.
