Leírás

Low-exposure working procedures when working with asbestos during demolition, renovation and maintenance work have been evaluated and approved by the working group ASI Works based on representative results. The use of tested (standardised) low-exposure procedures ensures that workers' exposure is below 15,000 F/m3 and that the working environment (indoor area) is not contaminated. Approved procedures are published in the form of a working instruction. The additions and updates that have been added since 2000 can be accessed at www.dguv.de/ifa/de/pra/asbest/index.jsp
