Abstract
Personal and environmental air samples were analyzed for asbestos (1332214), and asbestos removal procedures were evaluated at the Guilford School (SIC-8210), in Cincinnati, Ohio, on September 30, 1981, and on October 1, 1981. An unidentified individual requested the evaluation on behalf of an unspecified number of workers. All air samples were below the detectable limit. The author concludes that the protective measures enacted by the contractor removing the asbestos from pipes were adequate to prevent asbestos contamination. He recommends the use of partitions in the work area, establishment of clean and dirty change of clothes areas, sealing of all duct work, wetting of settled dusts, use of NIOSH approved respirators, and adherence to prescribed standards for asbestos removal to minimize any potential hazards.
