Abstract This report outlines the mining, milling, uses, and health effects of asbestos. Its major applications are in asbestos cement products, floor tiles, electrical equipment, brake linings, and flame resistant compositions. Impaired human health from industrial exposure to asbestos is well known. Additional information is needed on the effects of low level asbestos concentrations in air and water. Present control technologies, regulations, and major sources of pollution are reported and areas where information is needed are indicated.
