Chapter 56: Respirable Crystalline Silica

The purpose of this program is to ensure that worker exposure to respirable crystalline silica remains below the permissible exposure limit (PEL) and that material containing silica is properly handled and disposed of. It covers all work that could cause the release of silica, such as demolition or drilling of concrete or work with materials that contain silica. It applies to workers potentially exposed to airborne concentrations of respirable crystalline silica, their supervisors, competent persons, subcontractors, and the program manager; and Waste Management and Occupational Health.

This chapter constitutes SLAC's written respirable silica exposure control plan required by 8 CCR 5204.
