Abstract The fibrous glass industry is a little less than 50 years old and within one generation has become one of the most versatile manufactured products, with a myriad of uses. In 1982, the annual production is between 3.5 to 4 billion pounds per year, with a value of approximately 2 billion dollars; however, because of its use for insulation and its ability to replace asbestos, the production rate should increase significantly. NIOSH estimates that 200,000 persons in the United States may be exposed occupationally to fibrous glass. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) initiated an 18-month inhalation study at Battelle Columbus Laboratories on September 28, 1978. The objectives of the study were to assess the adequacy of the current OSHA standard and to determine the character of pulmonary physiological and pathological responses produced by fibrous glass particles.
