  1. Third wave of asbestos-related disease from secondary use of asbestos : a case report from industry.

    Article - En anglais

    An occupational health survey conducted in a workshop in which asbestos cement was used showed initial atmospheric asbestos levels ranging from 1,9 to 27,5 fibres per millilitre of air.

    Radiological changes suggestive of asbestos-related pleural disease were found in 2 workers (2,5%), while 3 (3,8%) had borderline features of asbestosis.

    The survey confirmed that uncontrolled and hazardous use of asbestos continues in industry despite public awareness of its dangers and the Asbestos Regulations of 1987.
