Silica dust control
(Posted on 16/04/18)
In a move to help all silica dust-producing operations comply with impending rule changes, two pioneers in industrial dust control are reminding customers that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) respirable crystalline silica (RCS) dust emissions Final Rule [OSHA §1910.1000 Respirable crystalline silica] compliance deadline for general industry and maritime is June 23, 2018.
Both experts in complementary technologies covering a broad range of activities, Martin Engineering and BossTek (formerly Dust Control Technology) help operators safeguard the health of individuals through the use of field-proven equipment to minimize fine particulates, forced downtime and potential litigation.
Serving customers from mining, aggregates and coal handling to demolition, workplace safety has always been a priority for the sister companies. “We believe dust control doesn’t need to come at the expense of production or profits, but should support operations and deliver a return on investment,” explained Jerad Heitzler, Foundations Training Manager at Martin Engineering. “Although added regulations are always a strain on any business, compliance is an opportunity to assess aging systems and improve efficiency.”
