What is the silica dust rule


Employers will need to measure the amount of silica workers are exposed to if it is at an action level greater than 25 micrograms per cubic meter of air. Proper protective measures must be taken if silica exposures are above the P.E.L. of 50 micrograms per cubic meter. Limit high-risk access. Crystalline silica is considered the toxic form of inhaled silica, while less is known about the toxicity of amorphous silica. Concrete can be made by substituting cement with materials like Fly Ash, CaCO3, and silica sand, which can increase the binding on pasta and the compressive strength of concrete. Silica fume at high dosages will greatly increase the amount of water needed to achieve the desired workability because of the high surface area, but this is almost always compensated by using a high-range water-reducing admixture (A.C.I. 234R). R.C.S. is also found in concrete and can lead to the development of silicosis or scarring of the lungs, which results in a loss of lung function and severe shortness of breath. Exposure to high concentrations can lead to death. Adding 7.5 percent silica fume, for a total of 15 percent silica fume by weight of cement, can produce a 28-day compressive strength of 10,300 psi (71 MPa). Using a walk-behind saw to cut masonry, concrete, stone, or other silica-containing materials can generate respirable crystalline silica dust. When inhaled, the small particles of silica can irreversibly damage the lungs. Fly ash is about half the size of cement and is about 50% silicon dioxide. Silica fume is about 1% the size of cement and is 85% plus silicon dioxide; its size and concentration make it much more reactive.
