Results of industrial hygiene surveys are presented, including the results of 243 asbestos (1332214) air samples, conducted at two asbestos textile production facilities which have achieved the 2 fibers of asbestos per cubic centimeter of air standard. Both facilities use unconventional production techniques. Conclusions drawn from the investigations express the need for: a study of new products; a tool to motivate consumers to switch to the new products when appropriate; and legislation which will protect all domestic producers of asbestos textiles from certain producers who do not have to absorb the added expense of meeting the OSHA standard.
