Why Is Dust Control Necessary?
Although unavoidable in many construction operations, the escape of dust particles into the workplace atmosphere is undesirable. Excessive dust emissions can cause both health and industrial problems:
– Occupational respiratory diseases
– Irritation to eyes, ears, nose and throat
– Irritation to skin
Risk of dust explosions and fire
Damage to equipment
Problems in community relations
California PM10 Standards
The State of California has established ambient air quality standards for PM. These standards define the maximum amount of particles that can be present in outdoor air without threatening the public’s health. In June of 2002, the California ARB adopted new, revised PM standards for outdoor air, lowering the annual PM10 standard from 30 µg/m3 to 20 µg/m3 and establishing a new annual standard for PM2.5 of 12 µg/m3.
For more information, see the Ambient Air Quality Standards chart at http://www.arb.ca.gov/aqs/aaqs2.pdf.
State and Federal Ambient Air Quality Standards for Particulate Matter California’s PM standards are more protective of human health than the corresponding set by EPA. See the EPA site for the new federal PM10 and PM2.5 ambient air quality standards at http://www.epa.gov/ttn/oarpg/naaqsfin.
Revision of the PM Standards
The ARB adopted new PM (particulate matter) standards in June of 2002, responding to requirements of the Children’s Environmental Health Protection Act (Senate Bill 25, Escutia 1999). This Act requires the evaluation of all health-based ambient air quality standards to determine if the standards adequately protect human health, particularly that of infants and children. The subsequent review of the PM standards resulted in the recommendation of more health-protective ambient air quality standards for PM10 and a new standard for PM2.5. More details of this review are available in the staff report, “Public Hearing to Consider Amendments to the Ambient Air Quality Standards for Particulate Matter and Sulfates.” The new PM standards became effective in 2003.
