The risk assessment for the human health of airborne mineral fibres, including asbestos minerals, is a complex task. WebFPTI is a browser-based software written in Python that allows users to calculate an index of toxicity and pathogenicity potential of mineral fibres based on their crystal-chemical-physical properties. WebFPTI can be a powerful tool for both academy and environmental/health institutions to classify the carcinogenicity potential of (respirable) mineral fibres, so that specific actions aimed at protecting workers and general public can be fostered.
