    "The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) considers asbestos to be a potential occupational carcinogen and recommends that exposures be reduced to the lowest feasible concentration. As the federal agency responsible for conducting research and making recommendations for the prevention of worker injury and illness, NIOSH has undertaken a reappraisal of how to ensure optimal protection of workers from exposure to asbestos fibers and other EMPs. As a first step in this effort, NIOSH convened an internal work group to develop a framework for future scientific research and policy development. The NIOSH Mineral Fibers Work Group prepared a first draft of this State of the Science and Roadmap for Scientific Research (herein referred to as the Roadmap), summarizing NIOSH's understanding of occupational exposure and toxicity issues concerning asbestos fibers and other EMPs."-- p. . iii
