Abstract
A comment on the article "Analysis of PCM Asbestos Air Monitoring Results for a Major Abatement Project" by Perkins, et. al. (Applied Occupational and Environmental Hygiene, 1992) was presented. In the response to the Perkins report, the author discusses a similar NIOSH study on worker asbestos (1332214) exposure which occurred during abatement activities despite the use of glove bags. In the NIOSH study, asbestos fiber concentrations increased after abatement in five of eight rooms studied and the average fiber concentration in the breathing zone of workers was 0.35 fibers per cubic centimeter. The conclusions and recommendations of the NIOSH study were examined and determined to be in agreement with the ones reached by Perkins. The author recommends the publication of other studies of occupational asbestos exposure involving the use of glove bags.
