Your resource for becoming OSHA compliant.
To better control this deadly dust, OSHA updated its crystalline silica exposure limit, making compliance much more difficult. In 2018, OSHA reduced the permissible exposure limit of crystalline silica to 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air over 8 hours. The best silica dust control methods, suggested by OSHA is a wet-cutting vacuum and respiratory protection when operating indoors. Our dust collection systems assist with airborne ventilation, as well as our HEPA filters.
With crystalline silica dust continuing to be a threat in industries, knowing what to do to protect your workers, and to be compliant with OSHA is vital. Pacific Industrial Equipment has products that can assist you in being compliant, but most importantly, being safe.
