Asbestos: mining exposure, health effects and policy

Asbestos. Asbestos are fibrous, naturally occurring hydrated silicates that have long been mined and used for their fire-retardant and insulating properties as construction materials (3, 4).Asbestos can be found in amphibole and serpentine forms (5, 6). 95% of the asbestos mined globally is in a serpentine form of chrysotile type, with fibres that are long and curly ().

Asbestos Risk & Coal Miners High Exposure Risk from Mining

Sep 10, 2020 Most commonly, coal mining is done through open-pit (or surface) mining and underground mining. If workers are not aware of the risks, they put themselves in danger. Being inside of long, narrow tunnels where asbestos dust has been stirred up through the mining process could expose miners to the dangerous fibers.
