Report on Asbestos Contamination in the Home
Read about how NIOSH executed its report on contamination in workers’ homes with dangerous carcinogens such as asbestos.
How was the asbestos contamination report done?
NIOSH obtained information on contamination for the report:
through requests for information published in the Federal
Register and CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report;
from federal and state agencies and programs;
from county agricultural extension agents;
from Poison Control Centers;
through letters to professional associations; and from published reports.
NIOSH published the report of this study in September 1995. It includes:
a summary of incidents of home contamination;
a survey of reported health effects;
information on sources and levels of contamination;
information on prevention and decontamination;
a summary of relevant federal and state laws; and
a description of responses by federal and state agencies and industry to incidents of workers’ home contamination.
