English translation:exposure occurs in the form of fibres
Explanation:
is the literal translation. You'd probably want to reword that somewhat according to the context, possibly 'exposure (is) measured/expressed in terms of fibres'.

ref:

ATSDR - The National Asbestos Exposure Review - Site Health ...
... OSHA has set a permissible exposure limit (PEL) of 0.1 f/cc for asbestos fibers ... fibers in surface dust do not directly pose a public health hazard. ...
