Recommendations are made for standards for occupational exposure to crystalline silica, based on a review of the literature regarding the health effects of exposure. Recommendations are made for the following items: levels of silica in the work place air; medical examinations; labeling; personal protective equipment and work clothing; informing employees of hazards from free silica; work practices and control procedures; monitoring and recordkeeping requirements. Topics reviewed are: biologic effects of silica exposure, including epidemiologic and toxicity data; and environmental data, including dust measurement and engineering control.
