The relationship between silica (7631869) flour exposure and development of silicosis is discussed. Development and characteristics of silicosis are described. Industrial uses for silica flour are reviewed and recommended exposure limits are provided.

Recommendations are included for exposure monitoring, engineering controls, medical surveillance, work practices, personal protective equipment, worker education, and product labeling.
