Dealing with asbestos-containing material of different types necessitated adopting measures to allow the technicians working under the safest conditions.

We developed a “Clean Room”, a chamber under depressed athmosphere with an absolute filter aspiration system that blocks the exit of any fibers, installed at the Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry of the University of Genoa.

The technicians operate equipped with all the personal protective equipment according to the safety requirements in the workplace (D.L. 81/2008).

Nobody is allowed to work alone in the Clean Room.

Finally, in order to manipulate the samples, a a laminar flow hood with absolute filters was installed.
