Abstract A survey was conducted to determine possible environmental asbestos (1332214) contamination at the Safety Clothing and Equipment Division (SIC-3842) of Safety First Industries, Incorporated, in Cleveland, Ohio, on March 30, 1972. The study was requested by the executive vice president of the company. Atmospheric samples for dust were taken in employee breathing zones during dust producing operations. A total of 11 operations were sampled; only 1 did not meet the standard of five fibers greater than 5 microns in length per milliliter for an 8 hour time weighted exposure. The author recommends that a properly designed hood be installed to enclose the glove and mitten turning operations, and employees should be instructed that wet brushed fabric may be as hazardous to health as other methods, even though there is less visible dust.
