A National Study in India on the Fibre-Cement Products Industry

A scientific study completed in 2019 in India titled National Study on Occupational Safety, Health and Working Environment sheds new light on the health of people in relation with the use, in that country, of the serpentine fibre known as chrysotile...

 

THE CHRYSOTILE INDUSTRY CREATED A RESPONSIBLE-USE PROGRAM THAT IS BASED
ON THE CONTROLLED-USE APPROACH TO REGULATING CHRYSOTILE

 

 

The chrysotile fibre is encapsulated in a matrix of cement or resin, preventing the release of fibres.
 
More than 90% of chrysotile is used in the construction of buildings in fiber cement and in the making of construction materials.
