NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards Exposure limits, Respirator Recommendations, First Aid, more…
The Pocket Guide is a source of general industrial hygiene information on several hundred chemicals/classes found in the work environment.
Respiratory Protection Recommendations for Airborne Exposures to Crystalline Silica NIOSH Publication No.
In addition, the Alert cites examples of five construction operations that used poor dust controls and two operations that used good dust controls.Occupational Health Guideline for Amorphous Silica This guideline is intended as a source of information for employees, employers, physicians, industrial hygienists and other occupational health professionals who may have a need for information on amorphous silica.Occupational Health Guideline for Crystalline Silica This guideline is intended as a source of information for employees, employers, physicians, industrial hygienists and other occupational health professionals who may have a need for a need for information on crystalline silica. Silicosis, an irreversible but preventable disease, is the illness most closely associated with occupational exposure to the material, which also is known as silica dust.
workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica in a variety of industries and occupations, including construction, sandblasting, and mining.Criteria for a Recommended Standard–Crystalline Silica NIOSH Publication No.75-120 (1974) This report presents the criteria and recommended standards for preventing occupational diseases arising from exposure to crystalline variants of free silica.Of the 99 workers reported, 14 have already died from the disease, and the remaining 85 may die eventually from silicosis or its complications. 92-107 (1992) This Alert describes 23 cases of silicosis from exposure to crystalline silica during rock drilling.
