Mining Publication: Workplace Solutions: Reducing Hazardous Dust in Enclosed Operator Cabs During Construction
Original creation date: April 2009
Abstract Construction workers may be exposed to hazardous dust containing silica when working in enclosed cabs during construction activities. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found that equipment operator exposure could be reduced by retrofitting air pressurization and filtration systems on existing cabs, using sweeping compounds on soiled floors, and implementing a dust control program.
