Asbestos Program
Date: 7/17/2012
Asbestos is a general term used to describe several mineral silicates which are separable into fibers. Asbestos exposure is a major health hazard and inhalation of asbestos can produce severe lung damage. Marine Corps policy is to eliminate asbestos exposure by substitution with non-asbestos-containing materials or, where this is not feasible, through the use of engineering and administrative controls and personal protective equipment (PPE). Occupationally exposed personnel or those personnel with potential for exposure, and their supervisors, shall receive detailed indoctrination and annual refresher instruction. The Industrial Hygiene determines employees' exposure as well as conducts baseline physicals and determines the frequency of follow on physicals.
