    Fifteen peer-reviewed papers provide the latest information on silica and associated respirable mineral particles, with respect to the current rulemaking activity from the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This new publication demonstrates that it is possible to accurately measure respirable crystalline silica using properly applied analytical techniques employing appropriate calibration and the highest levels of quality control.

    Topics cover:
    • Regulatory Assessment of Respirable Crystalline Silica in Europe
    • Analysis of the Silica Percent in Airborne Respirable Mine Dust Samples from U.S. Operations
    • Quartz in Respirable Airborne Dust in Workplaces in Selected Coal and Metal Mines in India
    • Respirable Crystalline Silica Exposures among Stone Workers in Ireland
    • Measurement Precision of Respirable Dust and Silica in Workplace Conditions
    • Infrared Analysis of Respirable Coal Mine Dust for Quartz: Thirty-Five Years
    • And much more!
