OSHA's final rule to protect workers from exposure to respirable crystalline silica has been in force since September 23, 2017.

  • Reduces the permissible exposure limit to 50 µg/m3 or lower, average over an 8-hour shift
  • Requires employers to use engineering controls to limit worker exposure


Control Silica Exposure in Construction with HEPA Filtration Dust Collection Systems from CS Unitec

Silica Dust Collection Tools

Collect dust, concrete dust, drywall dust, coatings and more with CS Unitec power tools and vacuums. An industrial dust collection system will help protect workers from hazardous dust created when drilling, sawing, and grinding concrete, masonry and metal. Silica dust, paints, coatings and more can be extremely hazardous to operators.

For construction jobs using power tools, a common way to collect silica dust is by using a vacuum connected power tool. This system allows the silica dust to be collected at the source while the operator performs the task, offering additional protection to the operator.

Users can also suppress silica dust with a water-fed power tool. As the blade/bit cuts the material, water flows to the blade/bit and, in turn, reduces the airborne dust.
