Abstract
Environmental and breathing zone samples were analyzed for asbestos (1332214) at the Jewish Family and Children's Agency Office (SIC- 8999), Ardmore, Pennsylvania in March, 1984. The evaluation was requested by the district director of the agency because of concern about possible exposure to airborne asbestos from the ceiling in the reception area. The ceiling, previously encapsulated, had recently cracked due to water leakage. The asbestos concentrations were less than the analytical detection limit of 0.01 fibers per cubic centimeter. Samples taken from the ceiling and inside a duct contained approximately 1 to 2 and 5 percent chrysotile (12001295) asbestos, respectively. The author concludes that the employees at the Agency were not exposed to asbestos at the time of the survey. He recommends that the duct, not presently encapsulated, be treated so any loose fibers will not enter the reception room and periodic inspection of the encapsulation should be instituted.
