Motorcycle brake pads
Had to get the tire replaced on my yamaha 2006 nouvou 125cc motorcycle in a open shop right next to the door entrance. I left to let them take off the tire and replace and returned to p/u the bike 10min later.

Later I found out that they used an air compressor on the brake pads for 1 second but nothing on the drum. I was in the open garage for about 5 seconds before I left. Could I be at risk of asbestos exposure?
Thanks

Hello,

You should not be concerned based on the 5 second window of time that you were present in the garage.
