TLV Recommendation A TLV-TWA of 0.1 fiber/cc is recommended for all forms of asbestos. This TLV provides a good margin of safety in terms of asbestosis prevention. The weight of toxicological evidence supports the view that prevention of asbestosis will also prevent the risk of lung cancer. In terms of mesothelioma, there are inadequate dose-response data, but the recommended TLV should also serve to prevent the risk of mesothelioma in workers. The recommended TLV for the various forms of asbestos is for fibers greater than 5 um with an aspect ratio equal to greater than 3:1 as determined by the membrane filter method at 400 to 450X magnification (4-mm objective) phase-contrast illumination . At this time, no STEL is recommended until additional toxicological data and industrial experience become available to provide a better base for quantifying on a toxicological basis what the STEL should be. The reader is encouraged to review the section on Excursion Limits in the "Introduction to the Chemical Substances" of the current TLV/BEI Booklet for guidance and control of excursions above the TLV-TWA, even when the 8-hour TWA is within the recommended limits.

A review paper summarising the evidence supporting control limits on asbestos in the United Kingdom. It covers: trends in asbestos imports (the import of amosite had virtually ceased); asbestos-related diseases (asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma being strongly correlated with exposure to asbestos fibres, but also cancers of the larynx and the alimentary tract); relationship of health effects to fibre type; dose-response relationships; implications for the industrial control limit of crocidolite, amosite and chrysotile; measurement problems.

Excess mortality ascribed to lung cancer and ovarian cancer were found in the crocidolite workers but not in the chrysotile workers. Mesothelioma was mentioned on the death certificates of 5 women who had worked with crocidolite and 1 woman who had worked with chrysotile.

The paper describes the mortality experience of 5969 men employed in a factory where insulation board was manufactured using amosite asbestos from 1947 to 1979. 422 (7%) of the men were known to have died by the end of 1980. Among the 4820 men engaged in the manufacture of insulation board a doubling of the risk of lung cancer has occurred (57 deaths observed; 29 deaths expected). An excess is present both in men who entered the factory before and after 1960. Among the 2461 for whom smoking information is available a detectable excess risk is limited to current smokers exposed to higher levels of asbestos. Apart from five deaths from mesothelioma no statistically large or significant excesses of mortality from cancers of other sites have occurred, but further follow-up of the cohort is in progress. Nine deaths from asbestosis have been recorded. The results are discussed in the light of other studies of the effects of exposure to amosite asbestos.

    A review of carcinogenicity studies of asbestos and non-asbestos tremolite and other amphiboles

Experimental animal studies comparing asbestos and non-asbestos varieties of tremolite indicate tremolite asbestos is markedly more carcinogenic. By direct analogy, the differences in carcinogenicity between tremolite asbestos and non-asbestos prismatic tremolite should be the same for the other types of amphibole that also crystallize in the asbestos and non-asbestos habits. The earliest of the experiment animal studies, done more than 25 years ago, have design limitations by modern standards including the use of injection or surgical implantation as the route of administration rather than the more relevant route of inhalation. However, the differences in the carcinogenicity of amphibole asbestos and non-asbestos amphiboles are sufficiently large to be clearly discernable even with the study limitations. Together with later studies on these and related minerals, there is strong evidence of a much lower hazard associated with the shorter, thicker fibers of the non-asbestos amphiboles, than is found for the asbestos analogues of the same mineral. It is possible that the non-asbestos amphiboles are no more hazardous than other silicate minerals widely considered nuisance dusts.
