Summary of personal monitoring data for asbestos-related maintenance work at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) consists of 665 structures with approximately 6 million square feet of space. Many of the buildings date from the 1940`s to 1980`s and contain asbestos-containing materials (ACM). Maintenance and Operation activities, as well as full scale asbestos abatement and repair, has been conducted for many years. One result of all this activity is that a substantial database of personal monitoring data has been collected. This database is a collection of reported (Fed OSHA) Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) information, including 8-hour Time Weighted Averages (TWA) and 30-minute Excursion Limit (EL) samples. Because this data represented ... continued below

This database is a collection of reported (Fed OSHA) Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) information, including 8-hour Time Weighted Averages (TWA) and 30-minute Excursion Limit (EL) samples. Because this data represented a wide variety of asbestos removal techniques, materials and sampling strategies and industrial hygienists, a rigorous statistical comparison is of limited value. By summarizing the data by procedure category, procedures likely to result in significant exposures can be identified.
