Abstract
A report of a walk through survey of Avon Products, Inc. (SIC-2844), to analyze talc (14807966) samples for free silica (7631869) and asbestos (1332214). Results revealed that asbestos and free silica content are quite low. It was recommended that the two asbestos containing talcs be replaced with those containing less asbestos and that a pre-employment and routine chest X-ray program for workers be initiated.
