Abstract Worker exposures to asbestos (1332214) were surveyed on January 16, 1980, at Jaquays Mining Corporation (SIC-1499) mill in Globe, Arizona. The company employed about seven workers, and mined chrysotile asbestos. Respirators were provided for workers, but no formal respiratory protection program existed. Personal asbestos exposures ranged from 1.7 to 2.9 fibers greater than 5 microns per cubic centimeter (f/cc), and general area asbestos concentrations ranged from 0.7 to 2.9f/cc. All samples exceeded the proposed OSHA time weighted average standard of 0.5f/cc. The authors recommend that all workers wear respirators while in the mill or warehouse, and that a respiratory protection program be established. Workers should shower and change their clothing before leaving work.
