Small pieces of asbestos debris can be released from fireproofing in a building. When stepped on, asbestos fibers without any coating or encasement by gypsum binder are freed and are available to be transferred to other areas of the building. Scanning electron microscope examination with x-ray analysis was used to study the situation.
