Exposure Risks for Blast Room Dust

Blast room operators understand dust and the need to control it. One of the biggest concerns in a blast room is knowing what kind of blast media you are using, as well as the underlying substrate and coatings. Silica, coal slag, nickel slag, garnet sand, steel shot and glass beads are all common blast media. The fine particulates produced from using these media are a serious health risk if worker exposure is not controlled. For example, exposure to silica dust can lead to silicosis, chronic bronchitis and, in the worst cases, lung cancer. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently strengthened its standard for silica dust, so the need to meet tough regulations is more important than ever.

Regulations for Blast Room Dust

Controlling blast room dust isn’t just important for workers’ health—it’s crucial for meeting regulations. OSHA has issued around 500 permissible exposure limits (PEL’s) for different substances. These standards limit how much of a substance a worker can be exposed to in an 8-hour shift. Many of these standards are for metal dusts and other substances found in blast rooms. If an operator is unaware of the kinds of dusts produced in a blast room, third-party services are available to test air quality and provide a complete breakdown of what is in the air. Understanding this breakdown will help an operator craft the perfect dust collection system.
