Conveners: Sarah Kalika and Mark Bailey

Asbestos occurs naturally across the United States and around the world within mafic and ultramafic rocks as well as soils derived from these rocks.  Join us to learn about naturally occurring asbestos (NOA) and elongate mineral particles (EMPs), what minerals are regulated as asbestos, where they are typically found, sampling and analysis methods, health effects from inhalation, and the varying regulations that apply to construction workers, the public, and waste soil.  We will additionally discuss emerging issues relating to efforts to further define worker protection procedures and limit the use of asbestos in consumer products.
