||Two elementary schools on Fort Wainwright Army Base in Fairbanks, Alaska were demolished during the Summer of 1992. The primary objective of the study was to assess whether the demolition of the buildings with Category 1 materials in place resulted in a downwind increase in the airborne asbestos concentration. The secondary objective was to document the worker exposure levels encountered by the demolition workers and the workers transporting the debris. There was, however, no statistically significant (p values > 0.05) difference observed between the airborne asbestos concentrations measured upwind and downwind of the demolitions, nor were there any increases in downwind asbestos concentration observed during debris disposal and covering activities at the landfill. Personal air monitoring of workers indicated that asbestos exposures were well below the Occupational Safety and Health Administratin (OSHA) Action Level, and by definition, did not appear to present a significant health risk.
