OSHA Table Comments
- Crystalline Silica – OSHA – Final PELs – Table Z-3 Mineral Dusts
- Titanium dioxide – 15 mg/m3 TWA (total dust) U.S. – OSHA – Final PELs – Time Weighted Averages (TWAs)
- U.S. – OSHA – Final PELs – Table Z-3 Mineral Dusts Quartz
- (30)/(%SiO2 + 2) mg/m3 TWA, total dust; (250)/(%SiO2 + 5) mppcf TWA, respirable fraction;
- (10)/(%SiO2 + 2) mg/m3 TWA, respirable fraction. Titanium dioxide – 15 mg/m3 TWA (total dust)
Personal Protective Equipment
- EYES AND FACE: Wear protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles, per OSHA eye and face-protection regulations (29 CFR 1910.133). Contact lenses are not eye protection devices. Appropriate eye protection must be worn instead of, or in conjunction with contact lenses.
- SKIN: Wear chemical resistant gloves. Wear protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Keep exposed skin area to a minimum. Eye wash station and safety shower should be available.
- RESPIRATORY: If exposure can exceed the PEL/TLV, use only NIOSH/MSHA approved air purifying or supplied air respirator operated in a positive pressure mode per the NIOSH/OSHA occupational health guidelines for chemical hazards. If it is possible to generate significant levels of vapors or mists, a NIOSH approved or equivalent respirator is recommended.
- WORK HYGIENIC PRACTICES: Use good personal hygiene practices. Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking, or using toilet facilities. Promptly remove soiled clothing and wash thoroughly before reuse. Shower after work, using plenty of soap and water. Open containers of food and beverages should be kept away from areas where the product is used or stored. Eating, drinking, smoking and application of cosmetics should be prohibited in areas where the product is being used.
- OTHER USE PRECAUTIONS: Conditions of use, adequacy of engineering or other control measures, and actual exposures will dictate the need for specific protective devices at your workplace.
- COMMENTS : Avoid sanding or other activities that may produce airborne fibers from finished product.
