Exposure Risks for Laser Cutting Dust

In some ways, laser cutting is a safer metalworking process than many others. Sure, there is a high-powered laser involved, but the process is fast and hands-off. However, the dust created by laser cutting is a serious inhalation hazard. The intense heat involved in the process creates particulates in the sub-micron size; the smaller the particulate, the easier it is inhaled and absorbed into the body.

Regulations for Laser Cutting Dust

“Permissible exposure limits” (PEL’s) are set by OSHA to limit many individual toxic dusts. (A limit for nuisance dust exists, as well.) These limits are measurements of how much of a substance a worker can be exposed to over an 8-hour shift (using a time-weighted average). Here is a list of a few sample PEL’s that pertain to metals that might be found in metalworking dust:
