A health hazard evaluation of asbestos (1332214) concentrations in leased offices of the United States Department of Justice (SIC- 9100), Washington, D.C. was conducted. The study was requested by the Antitrust Division and was performed on February 16, 1982. Four area air samples and two bulk samples of ceiling material and settled dust were collected. No asbestos was found in any of the area air samples or in the settled dust. Ceiling material was found to contain 5 percent chrysotile asbestos. The author concludes that hazards from asbestos exposure do not exist for personnel working in the offices sampled.
