Complying with OSHA’s Respirable Crystalline Silica Rule starts with a thorough and manageable sampling plan.

A foundry’s silica sampling plan must be based on a thorough knowledge of industrial hygiene air-sampling methodologies, respirable crystalline silica behavior when airborne, specific characteristics of the metalcasting operations, and the pertinent OSHA requirements.

Now that manufacturers are required to comply fully with the OSHA General Industry Respirable Crystalline Silica Rule, foundries and other employers affected by the rule must carefully assess their compliance efforts.
