OSHA Publishes Booklet On Asbestos Standard For General Industry

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has published a revised booklet on the risks of occupational exposure to asbestos in general industry. The booklet highlights the revised standard that was published in the Federal Register on August 10, 1994.

"Asbestos Standard for General Industry" (OSHA 3095) explains standard requirements, including the permissible exposure limit, exposure monitoring and medical surveillance, recordkeeping, regulated areas, respirator and protective clothing use, hygiene facilities and housekeeping. The booklet also outlines methods of control and training that building/facility owners must institute to protect maintenance and custodial workers as well as methods of control for brake and clutch work. It identifies other sources of OSHA assistance such as consultation and voluntary programs. It also lists related OSHA publications.

A single, free copy of the booklet is available by sending a self-addressed label to the OSHA Publications Office, 200 Constitution Ave. N.W., Room N3101, Washington, D.C. 20210, telephone: (202) 219-4667, (202) 219-9266 (fax.)
