A recently by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
published handbook was developed to identify available engineering controls
that can assist underground and surface metal/nonmetal mining operations in
reducing worker exposure to respirable silica dust. The controls discussed in
this handbook range from long-used controls which have developed into industry
standards, to newer controls, which are still being optimized.
