Respirable Silica has been an occupational health issue for many decades; however, the topic has gained in interest following the publication of the Occupational Safety & Health Administration's (OSHA) new proposed rule which would comprehensively regulate workplaces where respirable silica is present.
If/when finalized, this rule would impose a significantly lower exposure limit (PEL) as well as other new requirements such as monitoring, medical surveillance, recordkeeping, training, and others. According to health organizations, over-exposure to respirable silica may lead to diseases such as silicosis and increased risk of lung cancer. Silica is an extraordinarily common substance as it is, basically, sand. Occupational exposures are common in the construction (masonry and concrete, roadways, others), oil & gas (fracking), petrochemical, and foundry industries - to name a few.
