A comprehensive hygienic characteristic of work conditions of representatives of main occupations in the asbestos-cement production is given. The leading role of dust loads related on the effect of chrysotile asbestos and the significance of the con¬comitant factors (heating microclimate, heaviness of the performed work) in the formation of the exposure dust doses with¬in a shift is highlighted. The possibility of the controlled use of chrysotile asbestos being safe for the human health is discussed.
