NIOSH researchers are developing an innovative silica monitoring approach that would generate silica concentration data right on site, immediately after collecting a respirable dust sample. The research is well underway and the results are very promising. Once the approach is optimized, it will allow occupational health professionals to quickly evaluate silica exposures, adjust the control technologies or implement new technologies/interventions, and promptly evaluate the efficacy of the intervention—ultimately giving companies more power to focus resources where they are needed and better protect the health of their workers.
