Occupational Exposure to Crystalline Silica Dust in

The current OSHA permissible exposure limit (PEL) for crystalline silica is based on a particle counting formula recommended by the ACGIH in the 1970s ( ACGIH 1980; OSHA 1989, 1993 ). In 1986, the ACGIH revised the threshold limit value (TLV) of 0.1 mg/m 3 for respirable quartz ( ACGIH 1986 ).

OSHA/NIOSH Exposure Limits Silicosis Help

NIOSH recommends to limit exposure to silica dust to 0.05 mg/m3 (50 µg/m3). This limit is based on a 10-hour workday and a 40-hour work week. In addition to setting limits, NIOSH has also recommended specific respirators and personal protective equipment (PPE) that will reduce the risk of exposure to toxins, including probable carcinogens.

Short-term silica exposures must be very high in order for those exposures to reach or exceed 25 μg/m 3 as an 8-hour TWA; for example, if an employee is exposed for only 15 minutes, his or her exposure would have to be higher than 800 μg/m 3 for that 15-minute period before the 8-hour TWA exposure would be at or above 25 μg/m 3.

Silicosis is a form of occupational lung disease caused by inhalation of crystalline silica dust. It is marked by inflammation and scarring in the form of nodular lesions in the upper lobes of the lungs. It is a type of pneumoconiosis. Silicosis is characterized by shortness of breath, cough, fever, and cyanosis. It may often be misdiagnosed as pulmonary edema, pneumonia, or tuberculosis. Silicosis resulted in at

Exposures to silica mixed dust and cohort

The health impacts on workers with silica mixed dust exposure in tin mines and dose-response relationships between cumulative dust exposure and the mortality from lung cancer are investigated. Methods: A cohort of 7,837 workers registered in the employment records in 4 Chinese tin mines between 1972 and 1974 was identified for this study and the mortality follow-up was traced through 1994.

It will be interesting to see what the illness and injury data say about silica exposures and illnesses in coal and metal/non-metal mining, respectively. When OSHA proposed its 2016 rule, silicosis had declined by 93% under the prior exposure limit, and critics argued that over 20% of samples were still not complying with the prior limit.

Lung Health Institute Can You Get Silicosis from

This is because the higher the exposure to silica, the less the lungs are able to naturally defend against the dust entering and settling within. Therefore, if a worker is exposed to a very high level of mineral dust only one time, he or she can still develop silicosis later down the road as a result of the silica settling in the lungs and causing damage.
