NIOSH Releases Beta Version of New Respirable Crystalline Silica Monitoring Software

Mines can now monitor worker exposure to hazardous respirable crystalline silica (RCS) more effectively thanks to new software developed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Mining Program in beta version. This novel, field-based tool called “FAST” (Field Analysis of Silica Tool), works together with commercially available FTIR analyzers (Fourier Transform Infrared) to determine a worker's exposure to RCS dust, providing detailed results immediately following a worker's shift.
