Environmental surveys of the bailing, printing, and corrugation processes are conducted for airborne concentrations of asbestos (1332214) fibers. The asbestos count in the breathing zone of bailing operatives is found to be 2.1 fibers per cubic centimeter while the concentration in the general work area is 0.3 fibers per cubic centimeter. Recommendations include local exhaust ventilation for the printing machine workers, wearing of respirator whenever scrap asbestos is bailed, replacement of air hoses by vacuum cleaners, and management's strict adherence to the rules and regulations governing the use and control of asbestos.
