Abstract
Environmental and breathing zone samples were analyzed for asbestos (1332214) at Richard Klinger Incorporated (SIC-3069), Sidney, Ohio in August 1983 as part of an in depth study of dust control during bag opening, dumping, and disposal. Asbestos control technology was inspected. The average time weighted asbestos concentrations was term (5 to 8 minutes) asbestos exposures during bag disposal were asbestos at the facility was achieved by using an automatic cleaner to clean spills and routinely remove settled and spilled asbestos from the floor. During periods of peak exposure, workers wore NIOSH approved respirators and disposable coveralls. Air sampling was used to identify any asbestos control problems. Closed bales of asbestos were torn. The author concludes that operation of the bag slitter does not increase asbestos concentrations. Closed bales of asbestos may be an emission source. Improving the quality of the wrapping around the bales and handling techniques during shipment are recommended.
