Evaluated the possible “take home” exposure (and risks) of asbestos on clothing.


We have conducted research evaluating the likelihood that biologically important quantities of asbestos might have routinely been taken home by workers who handled asbestos during the 1940-1960s era. 

We assessed the validity of various research efforts of the 1960s-1980s which indicated that only a limited quantity of respirable fibers which were present in contaminated clothing were likely to be released in the in-home environment.
