The regulatory and mineralogical definitions of asbestos shared by almost all silicates, asbestos is unique because of - rial is req~ired'~' its long, thin, strong, flexible fibers accordingly, to a min- regulatory asbestos definition to bulk and airborne dust. ‘asbestos is the general term for the fibrous silicates listed in the definition in regulation 2 any mixture which contains one or more of these fibrous silicates at more than trace amounts as defined in hsg248 asbestos the analysts’ guide for sampling, analysis and. Asbestos is the name used to describe a group of silicates which occur naturally in fibrous form and currently has many uses in a wide variety of applications and throughout various branches of the construction industry.
As fibrous silicates, asbestos minerals are broadly classified into the serpentine (chrysotile) and amphibole (crocidolite, amosite, tremolite, anthophyllite, actinolite) series, both of which may also contain allied but nonfibrous forms of similar or even identical chemical composition, nonpathogenic to humans. Asbestos is a general term which is used to describe a group of fibrous mineral silicates the three main types of asbestos include: chrysotile (white asbestos), amosite (brown asbestos) and crocidolite (blue asbestos. Means the fibrous form of mineral silicates belonging to the serpentine and amphibole groups of rock-forming minerals, including actinolite, amosite (brown asbestos), anthophyllite, chrysotile (white asbestos).
The best model for understanding asbestos-related fibrogenicity and mesothelial carcinogenicity is the very slow clearance of long, thin biopersistent fibers, of which commercial amphibole asbestos (amosite and crocidolite), erionite, and refractory ceramic fibers are excellent examples, from respiratory compartments.

Technicians for whicha mineralogical analysis ofnon-fibrous mineral particles in balfluid was requested between 1981 and 1992 for 23 the silicates measured were crys-talline silica, amorphous silica, kaolinite, mica, talc, chlorite, mean and estimate of sdwere reported for each variable before calculation, all data.
Derived from the greek asbestos (“unquenchable” or “indestructible”), asbestos is the collective term for a family of naturally occurring fibrous silicates that exist in metamorphic, altered basic, or ultra basic igneous rock. “asbestos” means the following fibrous silicates— (a) asbestos actinolite, cas no 77536-66-4 (iv) air monitoring and control, and the collection and analysis of samples to ascertain whether a specific material contains asbestos (3) where a duty is placed by these regulations on an employer in respect of employees of that. The usual definition of asbestos fiber excludes numerous other fibrous minerals that may possess an asbestiform habit but do not exhibit all of the properties of asbestos a few examples of these fibrous minerals are sepiolite, erionite (rod-like and.
