Synthetic Vitreous Fibers (Fiberglass) and Potential Exposure Risks Discussed in New Online Video

The IAQ Video Network releases another educational production about an important environmental, health and safety (EHS) topic.
PHOENIX - Jan. 10, 2021 - PRLog -- The IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates today announced the release of their latest educational video. Their newest production discusses potential exposure risks to synthetic vitreous fibers (SVFs).

"SVFs are man-made fibrous materials often used for thermal and sound insulating purposes or to reinforce other building materials," said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates and the IAQ Video Network. "They include glass fibers such as fiberglass, as well as mineral wool and refractory ceramic fibers. SVFs can become airborne when materials containing them are handled or disturbed. Exposure to these airborne fibers can cause irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined that refractory ceramic fibers are possibly carcinogenic to humans. We hope this new video provides some insight into potential exposure risks."

This video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that work to protect and enhance the public's health and safety. Sponsors include EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental and Healthy Indoors Magazine to name a few.
