Abstract
This chapter presented an overview of the recognition and prevention of diseases resulting from exposure to mineral dust. Topics covered in the chapter included exposure to asbestos (1332214) with information provided on exposure settings, environmental measurement of asbestos exposure, asbestos containing products listing, acute and chronic clinical effects resulting from asbestos exposure, clinical evaluation and management of asbestos exposure patients, and preventive measures, including the setting of exposure limits, monitoring exposures, regulated areas, control techniques, respiratory protection, training of workers, and medical surveillance. Similar information was provided for exposure to silica (14808607), coal dust, and synthetic vitreous fibers. A table of workers potentially exposed to synthetic vitreous fibers was included.
