Worker exposures to asbestos (1332214) were surveyed on August 8, 1976, at the Auto Brake Clinic (SIC-7539) in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company employed three workers. Personal breathing zone samples contained 0.16 to 1.82 fibers of asbestos greater than 5 microns per cubic centimeter (f/cc), and general area air samples contained 2.0 f/cc for an 8 hour time weighted average sample. The author notes that the potential does exist for hazardous exposure to asbestos, and recommends establishment of safe work practices.
