OSHA has recently changed the Respirable Crystalline Silica Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) to 50 mg/m3 for 8 hours and the Action Limit to 25 mg/m3.
[8.] Morfeld P Exposure-response association between cumulative exposure to respirable crystalline silica dust and lung cancer.
OSHA has been concerned about worker exposure to respirable crystalline silica for decades because of cases of silica inhalation that have caused silicosis, lung disease, and kidney disease.
The final rule establishes a permissible exposure limit (PEL) for respirable crystalline silica of 50 micrograms as an eighthour time-weighted average that was opposed by industry as unnecessary, not feasible, and not supported by scientific evidence.

Estimating respirable crystalline silica exposures for Chinese pottery workers and Iron/Copper, Tin, and Tungsten Miners.
Environmentally controlled cabs reduce operator exposure to harmful particulates such as respirable crystalline silica, aerosols, particulate matter, and other airborne contaminants.
The disease is caused by tiny dust particles, respirable crystalline silica, that are given off during stone masonry.
The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) have recommended a much more restrictive limit for respirable crystalline silica. The agency has a draft health effects analysis which was suppose to have gone to a peer review committee in November 2006, but did not.
Currently, the NIOSH (1998) and the ACGIH (2001) both recommend an occupational exposure limit of 0.05 mg/[m.sup.3] for respirable crystalline silica. OSHA recognized the need to revise the PEL to reflect current sampling and analytical methods, and the agency determined to address the significant risk of silicosis and other serious diseases associated with silica through a special emphasis program (SEP) on silicosis (Dear 1996; Jeffress 1998; OSHA 2003).
One emerging peril could be silicosis and sometimes fatal lung disease is caused by overexposure to respirable crystalline silica or quartz, the second most common mineral in the earth's crust.
OEHHA tendered its determination based on the results of a screening level assessment using testing data submitted by NPCA on the amounts of respirable crystalline silica produced from the normal use of interior flat latex paints, pursuant to NPCA's application for a SUD.
