Abstract
The Bureau of Mines has conducted research aimed at lowering the respirable dust exposures of mineral processing plant personnel. While performing this research, it has become obvious that to maintain a healthy working environment and to keep personnel in compliance with respirable dust regulations, plant managers need to consider all plant practices that can contribute to employees' personal dust exposures. Being aware of and controlling less obvious dust sources can have a major impact on reducing dust levels.
