NIOSH 1979 May:3 pages
A 90 minute presentation on asbestos (1332214) hazards given on April 11, 1979 by a NIOSH Industrial Hygienist to administrators and personnel of the Smithsonian Institution (SIC-8411) in Washington, D.C., is reviewed. The presentation concerned potential and existing asbestos hazards in the facility and was requested by the Institution. No existing hazard was identified, but potential problem areas were discussed along with hazard controls. Responsibility for decisions regarding asbestos control was assigned. It is recommended that permanent communications be established with the Federal Agency Safety Program in Washington, D.C. to assist with responsibilities of worker protection. It is concluded that the extensive resources available to the Smithsonian should be able to deal effectively with this problem.
