Excerpt from "OSHA's position on the risk associated with asbestos exposure at the current PEL."
permissible exposure limit (PEL) is the level of exposure established as the highest level of exposure an employee may be exposed to without incurring the risk of adverse health effects. Your letter later cites several statements found in the asbestos preambles which contradict this interpretation and which assert that a significant risk still remains at the PEL of 0.1 f/cc for asbestos.
