The Harvard researchers observed that the lifetime risk of one premature death per 100,000 associated with asbestos exposures was small compared with other environmental risks. The data in Table 3-3, taken from the Harvard report, offer some comparative risks by cause and affirms the low relative health risk of asbestos exposure. The primary health risk among occupants would appear to be to operations and maintenance people who, in the course of their duties, may disturb ACM.

In this way, the facility manager, who is wondering if wet carpeting in the lounge could cause asthmatic reactions can turn to bioaerosols. Or, the plant engineer, who may be trying to discern a relationship between the HVAC leaks he has just detected and coughing and wheezing among occupants, will find the approach workable.
