Selected References on Asbestos: Its Nature, Hazards, Detection, and Control.
National Education Association, Washington, DC.
This document provides teachers with sources of information about the nature, hazards, detection, and control of asbestos. Because many school buildings include asbestos-containing materials, teachers and other school personnel must be aware of the potential dangers to students and to themselves and take steps to have asbestos hazards contained or eliminated. In addition, they should be able to enlighten students about the dangers of asbestos when the need arises. The references listed were located through an extensive search of the literature and publications of concerned organizations and agencies. Along with citations of federal laws and regulations and of documents on asbestos, a list of organizations and agencies offering services and information is presented. Also included is a brief guide on how to reduce exposure to asbestos in the schools. (Author/IRT)
