National Summary
This analysis covers the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) general industry and construction industry standards for respirable crystalline silica. Specifically, the analysis covers the permissible exposure limit (PEL), action level for exposure to silica, methods of compliance, medical surveillance program, recordkeeping, and employee training. The purpose of the rules is to significantly reduce the amount of silica dust that workers can be exposed to on the job. That means that employers have to implement controls and work practices that reduce workers’ exposure to silica dust.

Toolbox Talks Crystalline silica: Controlling silica dust in construction  National
Questions & Answers For the new 1926.1153 silica standard, Table 1 gives specific methods for controlling the dust. The work practice that they give includes using an integrated water delivery system while cutting concrete. Would a garden sprayer work as effectively? 05/24/2017National
Questions & Answers If a respirator protection plan is required due to an air sampling for silica dust being above the action level, can I only offer P95-P100 'dust masks'? 08/03/2016National
Questions & Answers Is there any distinct prohibition against the use of compressed air, where the use of that air is thought to be the "only" way to clean silica containing dusts off surfaces, or accomplish the end production result? 06/16/2017National
